Inspectors say the Met Police’s procedures for rooting out corruption are “fundamentally flawed”

“Not fit for purpose.” That’s the damning indictment of Scotland Yard’s approach to tackling corruption within its ranks.

The watchdog also said whoever becomes the Met’s new Commissioner must make rooting out corruption an absolute priority in order to restore the public’s trust.
