The Guardian - Excoriating report condemns Met Police over racist, sexist culture

Summary of the front page

The Guardian reports on a review due to be published next week which will criticise the country’s largest police force for its racism, sexism and homophobia.

Sources with knowledge of the Casey report, which has been looking into the culture of the Metropolitan Police, have told the Guardian that its findings are “horrible” and “atrocious” and show the force is “in the last chance saloon”. 

The paper has been told the report finds that Wayne Couzens, who murdered Sarah Everard, and David Carrick, another officer jailed for numerous rapes, were not one-offs, but symptoms of serious failings. The Met Commissioner, Sir Mark Rowley, has already promised to change the force. Scotland Yard has declined to comment until the report is published next week.
