Met Police 'deeply sorry' for failures in Westminster paedophile claims case


Sir Steve House, Deputy Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, apologises for mistakes made during the Operation Midland investigation into fabricated claims of a VIP paedophile ring in Westminster. The main cause of the force's investigation into fabricated claims of a VIP paedophile ring in Westminster was "poor judgment and a failure to accurately evaluate known facts", a damning report has said. Former High Court judge Sir Richard Henriques also said a "major contributing factor was the culture that 'victims' must be believed" in his findings, more of which were published by the force on Friday after coming under pressure to be open and transparent.
