News Correspondent

“Everyone in policing feels betrayed”: the Met Commissioner said today, after police officer Wayne Couzens pleaded guilty to the murder of Sarah Everard – snatched from the street in South London as she walked home from a friend’s house in March.

Dame Cressida Dick described Ms Everard as a “fantastic, talented young woman with her whole life ahead of her”.

But the police now face serious questions over how the murder happened and stand accused of shortcomings in the way they handled the case.
