Any home is a potential target for burglars; some are more appealing than others and some offer themselves up with a bow that begs to be opened.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission is to independently investigate the circumstances surrounding a ‘near-miss' in custody after a 30-year-old Sketty man was found collapsed in a police cell in Swansea on 10 July 2012.
South Wales Police referred this incident to the IPCC because it is alleged that a custody staff member employed by a private contractor had recorded in custody records that they had checked the prisoner in his cell, whereas the CCTV did not show the visit.
IPCC Commissioner for Wales Tom Davies said: "Fortunately, this man was found in time and has now recovered. Medical staff had advised that this particular man was to be visited at 30-minute intervals because of concerns about his health.
"There has been a lot of work and policies aimed at making detention safer and our investigation will examine what happened in this case and what specific training custody staff are given."
