The independent Police Complaints Authority has agreed to supervise an investigation into allegations made against certain North Yorkshire police officers.

North Yorkshire Police Authority voluntarily requested the PCA to oversee an investigation into allegations they received last month. PCA deputy chairman John Cartwright has agreed to the appointment of Colin Bailey, chief constable of Nottinghamshire Constabulary as the investigating officer.

The terms of reference are `to investigate disciplinary allegations of neglect of duty by chief officers and others in failing to ensure the proper investigation of serious matters involving inappropriate and oppressive conduct, as contained in correspondence received by the chairman of the North Yorkshire Police Authority on 24 September 1996.'

PCA chairman Peter Moorhouse said: 'We appreciate the considerable public concern that has been expressed. We have agreed to supervise this investigation into internal police matters because of the public interest and the concern of the police authority.'

'A full report will be made to the police authority, in due course,' he said.
