Met Police investigated over child abuse cover-up claims

The police watchdog is investigating alleged corruption in the Metropolitan Police, including claims it covered up child sex offences because MPs and police officers were involved.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating 14 referrals spanning four decades.

The Met said it had voluntarily referred the allegations, which arose from an investigation launched in 2012.

Tom Symonds reports.
