Martin Blunden was suspended from service after complaints against him were received. The complaints were from a senior figure about how he treated the officers. There were apprehensions regarding this claim, but now, after Martin deleted his Twitter profile, apprehensions have become strong.
Martin, who had widespread support from his colleagues and seniors, is now losing the same. After receiving several complaints regarding the same things, the chief SFRS authorities decided to suspend Martin until further investigations.
All the investigations are carried out under extreme precautions and will be kept confidential. Staff members and other people are being questioned about this issue. There hasn’t been any substantial news regarding this yet.
