The UK’s largest police force is facing with more damaging allegations that it has failed to deal with racism within its ranks.
Brian Paddick, a former commander in London's Metropolitan Police, says a report he made first highlighting the problem eight years ago was completely ignored by his bosses.
Over the past decade, 120 police officers have been found guilty of racist behaviour. But out of all of them, only one police officer was dismissed.
With those figures, it is perhaps no surprise that there is a very real danger of the Metropolitan Police coming across as failing to address issues of racism within its force.
