A man who claims a Northamptonshire police investigation into a series of crimes, including theft, says the botched way it was handled, left him suicidal.

Steve McIlroy has been standing outside Northants Police HQ today hoping to catch the eye of the Chief Constable and passing members of the public to his cause.

He says it began in 2015 after a family incident after which the police were called in.

But Mr McIlroy claims the officer involved mishandled the case and further claims the information wasn't all fully passed to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, when he later complained about how his case was being investigated.

Mr McIlroy says his health suffered so much, he tried to tried to take his own life in March, saying the Professional Standards Department of Northants Police refuses to listen to his concerns.

Heart asked Northants Police to respond to the allegations made by Mr McIlroy.

In a statement a police spokesperson said:

"Mr McIlroy's complaint has been thoroughly examined and reviewed on a number of occasions and, in line with due process, he has been directed to the next course of action available to him.

He has the right to seek a judicial review of the Force's decision and, as such, it would be inappropriate of us comment further at this time."

Mr McIlroy says he'll be back out with his placard again until he believes justice is done.
