Police must ‘double down’ on efforts to root out criminal cops says Home Secretary

The Home Secretary has urged police forces to ‘double down’ on their efforts to root out criminals in their ranks, after a Met officer was revealed to be one of the country’s most prolific rapists.

Suella Braverman announced an internal Met review, and said that an independent inquiry into the murder of Sarah Everard by another serving officer would also now consider the crimes of David Carrick – who was formally dismissed this morning.
