Vital to learn lessons from the Daniel Morgan case

Responding to the Met’s apology over the Daniel Morgan murder probe, Caroline Pidgeon said:

"The apology by the Met today is a welcome and long overdue move.

"The repeated trauma that Daniel Morgan's family have had to go through over the years is something no one should ever have to experience and should never be allowed to happen again.

"It is now vital the Met learns from this case and stamps out corruption at every level."

The Met's turnaround plan needs central government backing

Responding to the publication of the Met’s turnaround plan, “A New Met for London 2023-2025”, Caroline Pidgeon said:

“The plans laid out today by the Met represent a welcome shift in tone and focus, even if long overdue. In particular, the shift of resources towards the boroughs is something we have long campaigned in favour of.

“Central government now needs to back the turnaround plan with funding, resources and staff; alongside new powers to enable the Met to remove corrupt officers quickly.
