But Au told Annemarie Evans that these cases didn't make up a large proportion of total allegations and the IPCC would be better off looking at other areas of concern.

Rowers traverse Atlantic for mental health and spinal injury research  Listenfacebook
Former Hong Kong resident Peter Robinson and three of his friends are going to be spending Christmas in unusual fashion, in a small boat out in the middle of the Atlantic. And they are undertaking their unsupported bid to row across the ocean from Gran Canaria to Antigua, in the Caribbean, all in the name of charity. They are raising money for the mental health charity, Mind, and for spinal injury research, which has a very personal connection for Peter stretching back to his days of playing youth rugby here. He spoke to Annemarie Evans from the Canary Islands, before the start of their row next week.
