A COMPLAINT made by a Tyldesley councillor against a police officer is being  investigated.

Clr Robert Bleakley lodged the complaint against Ch Supt Shaun Donnellan on March 5 following comments he made to the press in relation to an original complaint Clr Bleakley lodged against Wigan Council.

The independent councillor has accused the commander of Wigan Police of 'political bias' towards the Labour-run council.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “Greater Manchester Police’s Professional Standards Branch has received a formal complaint which is now being investigated. As a result we cannot comment any further at this stage.”
