Lancashire Police Give Policeman £5000 For Wrongful Arrest

“Any civil claims that the force is involved in are private matters between the constabulary and the claimant.”

No. It isn’t. It’s matter for the public to know how the police behave and how the cash gets spent. The time for snootiness has passed…
