Hogan-Howe vows to restore trust after Lawrence row

The head of the Metropolitan Police has vowed to win back the public's trust after a damning report found officers spied on the family of murdered black teenager Stephen Lawrence.

Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said the report, which has prompted an inquiry into undercover policing, was "devastating".

He said a new independent probe into police records would be commissioned.

Met Commander Richard Walton, who was criticised in the report, has meanwhile been temporarily moved from his post.

June Kelly reports.
