Home secretary to order review into VIP abuse investigation

Home Secretary Priti Patel is to order a new inquiry into the Met's widely criticised investigation into allegations of a VIP paedophile ring.

Sparked by false claims made by Carl Beech against politicians and senior military officers, Operation Midland cost £2.5m but led to no arrests.Now police watchdog Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary is to be told to review the force. The Scotland Yard inquiry led to a review by a senior retired High Court judge, Sir Richard Henriques, with his full findings due to be made public on Friday.43 errors were made during Operation MidlandThese included believing the testimony of Beech - who was previously referred to as"Nick" in the media - for too long as well as an officer referring to his claims as being"credible and true".

Sir Richard Henriques' summary added that a culture that alleged victims must be believed was a"major contributing factor" to the investigation's failing. Met commissioner Cressida Dick, who oversaw the early stages of Operation Midland, has previously rejected demands for a new investigation into the officers involved.

This was a dreadful investigation by the Police and the evidence of the allegation was never tested. This should never be allowed to happen again!!!!!!

Good time the police were properly investigated over this !

I bet the BBC is worried.

He looks like Bobby Moynihan's character 'Drunk Uncle'! LOL!
