Caroline Flack’s mother, Christine, has incited the reinvestigation of a complaint she had made about the Met Police’s treatment of her daughter’s case. In her complaint, Christine claimed that the Love Island presenter’s fame led to her being treated differently.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police (MPS) has informed the BBC that the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) had told the MPS to reinvestigate an aspect of an old complaint.

The MPS spokesperson said: “Following a review, the IOPC agreed with the MPS that service was acceptable in relation to seven areas of the complaints relating to the response and handling of the incident by the MPS.

“The IOPC has directed the MPS to reinvestigate one element of the complaints.

“This relates to the process involved in appealing the CPS decision to caution Ms Flack.

“We will re-examine this element of the investigative process.

“Our thoughts and sympathies remain with Caroline’s family.”

Christine told the BBC: “I just want those answers to make me feel better and to make me know that I’ve done the right thing by Caroline.”

When asked whether she feels the decision to charge Caroline contributed to her death, Christine said: “Oh, totally. Totally. She couldn’t see a way out.”

She added that there is now “no trust at all” in the force.

Christine continued: “I just want the truth out there.

“And it won’t bring her back. I know it won’t bring it back. But I’ve got to do it for her.”

Caroline was tragically found dead in her home in Stoke Newington on February 15, 2020.

The TV star was 40-years-old when she took her own life.

Caroline’s suicide came after she found out that prosecutors were going to go ahead with an assault charge over an incident with her boyfriend Lewis Burton.

Her family issued a statement at the time to The Sun confirming the news.

The statement read: “We can confirm that our Caroline passed away yesterday on the 15th February.

“We would ask that the press both respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time.”

Caroline began her career as an actress when she starred in Bo’Selecta! in 2002 before going on to present several ITV2 spin-off series.

Following a series of presenting stints, Caroline became the sole presenter of Love Island until she stepped back from the role at the end of 2019.
