Lord Bramall cleared in sex probe wants police prosecuted

By David Hughes

Former military chief Field Marshal Lord Bramall has suggested that police who investigated him over historical sexual abuse allegations should face prosecution.

The ex-head of defence staff received a reported £100,000 in compensation and an apology from Scotland Yard's then chief over its doomed VIP sex abuse probe.

Lord Bramall claimed then-Metropolitan Police commissioner Lord Hogan-Howe had admitted that officers knew "almost at once" there was no truth in the allegations but could not publicly say so.

The £2.5m Operation Midland inquiry closed without making a single arrest.
