Three more officers from a town's police force which carried out a "zero tolerance" policy on crime have been suspended as part of a corruption investigation, it emerged yesterday.

This takes the total number of suspensions in Middlesbrough CID to seven officers, with a further four being moved from CID to other departments.

The investigation began in September last year after two defendants changed their pleas at trial. In December, Ray Mallon the head of Middlesbrough CID, and architect of the Cleveland force's controversial crime policy, was also suspended.
