Police look to recruit more transsexuals

Britain's biggest police force is recruiting more sex-swap police, it's been revealed.

The Met, which polices London, now has four transsexuals, who have had operations to switch genders, and a further eight hermaphrodites, who were born a mix of male and female.

The Sun revealed that they investigate crimes against cross-gender victims, which are believed to be on the rise and which the Government has vowed to fight back against.

There was controversy when it was revealed that police officers who wish to change sex while in the Met will get a year's paid leave, with 183 days at full pay.
