Plebgate: New inquiry for police officers

3 November 2013 Last updated at 18:32 GMT

The officers at the heart of the so-called Plebgate affair will face another inquiry into their conduct by the police watchdog.

It comes after a report by the Home Affairs Select committee which strongly criticised the evidence the three officers gave them, when they denied conspiring to damage former chief whip, Andrew Mitchell's reputation.

Two of the officers have been recalled to Parliament on Tuesday to apologise.

Ben Wright reports.
