A senior conservative MP has criticised three Police Federation reps for failing to "tell the whole truth" about the so-called Plebgate affair involving former chief whip Andrew Mitchell.

David Davis, a former shadow home secretary and friend of Mr Mitchell, said the public should be able to trust the police force.

He told the BBC: "The small number of bad apples ought to be capable of being taken out and dealt with."
