Greater Manchester Police chief says corruption 'not endemic'


The Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police has told the BBC that corruption across the police force does not exist.

Peter Fahy says it is "bewildering" to think that the "misjudged actions of a few" would imply endemic corruption in British policing.

He tells Radio 5live Breakfast how damaging the hacking scandal has been to the Metropolitan Police and how policing will cope with the Inspectorate of Constabulary's report that shows 34,000 jobs will be lost over the next four years.
