Talks are being held in a bid to resolve the suspension of Lincolnshire's temporary chief constable.

Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Alan Hardwick suspended Neil Rhodes while investigations into "potential conduct matters" were being considered.

Solicitor Imran Khan said he was in discussions with the commissioner with a view to resolving matters.

No details have been released about the allegations.

Plans scrapped

Mr Khan said: "We hope that common sense will prevail."

Mr Rhodes took up the role on a temporary basis when the previous chief constable Richard Crompton retired at the end of March, last year.

Mr Rhodes was placed in charge until the end of March 2013, when his future was scheduled to be discussed with the new PCC.

His appointment followed a deal with private security company G4S to run an out-of-town custody suite at the force's Nettleham headquarters, near Lincoln.

He said the changes would save the force money for front-line police officers and police community support officers.

In November PCC Alan Hardwick said he would scrap the plans.

Deputy Chief Constable Alec Wood has been appointed acting chief constable.
