A MEETING to hear a complaint against the elected head of Thames Valley Police has finally been rescheduled.

The meeting was first put back a month in February after the committee decided it was 'too complex' for them to make a decision.

The second meeting was then cancelled after the country was put into lockdown to halt the spread of coronavirus.

Police and crime commissioner Anthony Stansfeld was accused of abusing his position by using his work email to personally warn a private citizen that he might face criminal action.

Complaints against Mr Stansfeld, who gets paid £86,700 a year, are sent to his own office before they are passed onto the Police and Crime Panel.

The panel is made up of 18 elected councillors from across Thames Valley and is designed to hold his decisions to account.

But it has since emerged that the panel have no actual powers to punish him.

Now it has been revealed that the meeting delayed from March 20 will be heard at a private meeting on September 4.

The private meeting means that no members of the public or press are allowed to listen in or attend.

The agenda and papers for the meeting will be released on August 26.
