    Delay in police-raid inquiry 'an outrage'

    Police have been accused of a "scandalous delay" of more than three years in investigating the case of a Wellington man who suffered a broken neck when police raided a party. Wellington police say it will be another six weeks or so before they issue their findings over an incident involving Jakob Christie, who suffered a fractured vertebra when police closed down a party in Homebush Rd, Khandallah, in September 2009.
