It crossed my mind that if I could ponder on whether the IPCC had finished its investigation and I had missed it, that maybe others were thinking the same thing.

So I wrote asking for confirmation of the situation and back came the confirmation that it was still an active investigation.

After all this time PC Blackburn is sticking to his story that he knew nothing about all the complaints that had been sent to him. For reasons that I have offered several times in the past, he does not offer a credible defence and one day the IPCC will grow tired of his claim that he had forgotten them and that he did not understand his Inspector's English and could not remember referring to them when on the phone to me.

So, there you are, the investigation is still active after nearly 18 months.
