Former Met chief Lord Stevens under investigation

Former Metropolitan Police chief Lord Stevens is being investigated by the police watchdog over information he gave to the inquiry into the Met's handling of the Stephen Lawrence murder case.

The IPCC confirmed it was investigating the evidence Lord Stevens gave to the Macpherson Inquiry in 1998.

The Met said it referred the matter to the IPCC following a public complaint.

Lord Stevens has previously denied any wrongdoing, as Tom Symonds reports.
