IPCC investigative failures prompt legal action

Lynnette Wallace was assaulted in a police cell whilst 7.5 months pregnant, in July 2011. She has fought since that date to see the officers who assaulted her brought to justice. In May, Nottinghamshire Police abandoned gross misconduct proceedings on the basis that the IPCC had delayed too long over their investigation.

Ms Wallace is now bringing proceedings against the IPCC for their failure to conduct a proper and prompt investigation. Their recent apology is too little, too late.

Carolynn Gallwey of Bhatt Murphy represents Ms Wallace.
