Met Police whistleblower 'vindicated' by crime stats report

1 May 2014 Last updated at 10:54 BST

PC James Patrick says he has been "forced out" of the Metropolitan Police despite his concerns about the recording of crimes being echoed by a new report.

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) found that a fifth of crimes in England and Wales could be going unrecorded by police.

Mr Patrick had previously claimed that crime figures were manipulated and sexual offences were being under-reported by 22-25%.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Thursday 1 May.
