Family condemns Met over unfair treatment of officer

The family of a man found burned to death has condemned the police for punishing the inspector who revealed a "catalogue of errors" in the investigation into his death.

Kester David's body was found under a railway arch in Palmers Green, north London, in 2010.

An employment tribunal ruled Insp Brian Casson was unfairly treated by the force when he highlighted failures.

The Met said the death is unexplained and the investigation continues.
