Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp 6am - 10am
Six Metropolitan police officers will keep their jobs - despite smashing up a suspects car with baseball bats.
They've all been warned - and one detective had his rank reduced for being "overly aggressive" during the incident in Edmonton 3 and a half years ago.
IPCC Deputy Chair, Deborah Glass, said: "Officers acting in this way bring the police service into disrepute. You do not expect to see police officers smashing a car with a baseball bat. Whatever the threat they claimed to experience, their actions should be proportionate and reasonable which in this case they plainly were't. They breached their codes of professional conduct
and their actions were far below the standards rightly expected of police officers by the public.
