White officers accuse Metropolitan Police of racism

Six white police officers have accused Scotland Yard of racial discrimination, saying they are the victims of political correctness.

The officers are taking the Metropolitan Police to an employment tribunal - but accuse the force of delaying tactics.

One of the officers, speaking for the first time to the BBC, said he now had nothing but contempt for the force.

Scotland Yard says it rejects the claims and will contest them in court.

June Kelly reports.
