North Wales Police in new race row over ‘slavery’ jibe

A Race  complaint against a member of North Wales Police staff has been upheld by a watchdog.

A civilian member of staff told an Afro-Caribbean holidaymaker after he had been arrested that his name probably came from a slave plantation.

The member of staff has since left the force and North Wales Police have improved procedures.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has also agreed the man’s counter-claims that he was the victim of a racially aggravated assault by security staff at the holiday park, were not properly investigated.

The force said it “regretted” the handling of the incident.
