This will be a short post because the person concerned, Sergeant Alan Dadd hardly got a mention at the time in relation to the death of Dr David Kelly.
So far as I can see he is mentioned just once in the Hutton Inquiry and that's in this bit of testimony by PC Sawyer. Mr Knox has got to the point where the ambulance crew have arrived at the parking area at the bottom of the track:
Q. Those two paramedics had obviously arrived separately from you?
A. They had arrived more or less at the same time we did. So the five of us went up because we were with Sergeant Alan Dadd as well.
In the Mail on Sunday of 12 September 2010 Matt Sandy wrote an article from the perspective of the ambulance crew and says:
They were met at the scene by Sergeant Alan Dadd and several other officers. He led them up a bridle path towards the woods ...
Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I'm not aware of his name elsewhere in connection with Dr Kelly's death. As I recall things PC Franklin takes over the scene at the body from DC Coe only to leave the site to go back down the track with PC Sawyer to bring up the police landrover! Surely as the more senior officer Sergeant Dadd should have taken charge - at least until DI Ashley Smith or some other higher ranking officer came.
But this is Thames Valley Police where nothing is normal .....
