The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating the alleged misuse of the North Wales Police computer system, and the subsequent release of information by a police officer.

The officer has been arrested and is currently released on police bail and suspended from duty while the investigation is carried out.

IPCC commissioner Tom Davies said, "Very serious allegations have been made against a serving police officer. I have decided the investigation needs independent oversight, and this will be managed on my behalf by an IPCC investigator."

Because of potential legal proceedings, the IPCC said it was not appropriate to give out any further information on the alleged computer misuse.
