Joint Statement From ITV News And Avon And Somerset Police
Avon and Somerset Police and ITV News:
'The Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset Police, Colin Port, and the Editor-in-Chief of ITV News, David Mannion, have today resolved differences between their two organisations resulting from a report on News at Ten on Tuesday 4 January 2011.
ITV News has made careful note of the concerns raised by the Chief Constable. The Chief Constable has made it clear that ITV News is welcome to attend future Force press conferences.
Both parties now regard the matter as closed and will not be making any further comment. The complaint made by Avon and Somerset Police to Ofcom is no longer being pursued.'
