The complaints in this case arose from officers forcing entry to the applicant's garage in connection with a missing person enquiry.

Two complaints were reviewed, namely:

1. that Police Scotland forced entry to the applicant's premises unlawfully; and

2. that unreasonable force was used by officers to gain entry to the garage.

The review found that neither of the complaints were dealt with to a reasonable standard. Two reconsideration directions were made.
