'Plebgate' police: We did nothing wrong, says officer

Three police officers involved in a dispute with Andrew Mitchell about the "plebgate" affair say they do not owe an apology to the former chief whip.

They told MPs that they stood by their "accurate" account of a meeting with Mr Mitchell in October 2012.

Mr Mitchell, who resigned over the row, has challenged the officers' claim that he was not open about the incident.

"I'm not convinced that we have done anything wrong," said Sgt Chris Jones, of West Midlands Police.

He was appearing before the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, along with Insp Ken MacKaill, of West Mercia Police and Det Sgt Stuart Hinton, of Warwickshire Police.
