Met Police whistleblower 'vindicated' by crime stats report

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.
