IPCC announces probe into claims Met Police covered up Westminster sex abuse scandal

The police watchdog has formally announced it is investigating claims that Scotland Yard covered up child sex offences because of the alleged involvement of MPs and police officers.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said it is investigating 14 referrals detailing alleged corruption in the Metropolitan Police, which relate to child sex offences from the 1970s to the 2000s, after the move was disclosed by The Telegraph.

Last November, Vishal Mehrotra’s father, retired magistrate Vishambar Mehrotra, told the Telegraph that police had deliberately covered up his son’s killing to protect a network of high-profile child abusers.

After his allegations were passed to Scotland Yard, the Met Police launched an internal investigation into historic "corruption", which has now been officially referred to the IPCC.
