R (on the application of Peters) v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police

Police – Complaint against police. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police's decision dismissing his appeal against a decision rejecting his complaint against various police officers. The claimant contended that CCTV footage demonstrated that two officers had fabricated their accounts in order to justify their actions, including his arrest. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the defendant's decision had been fair and reasonable, as the footage had been inconclusive.
