Met police commissioner faces IPCC investigation

The Guardian:

The commissioner of the Metropolitan police, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, is facing an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission into his actions on the day of the Hillsborough disaster in April 1989, in which 96 people died.

The complaint against Hogan-Howe, Britain’s top policeman, includes the fact that he appears never to have made a statement after Hillsborough to any of the official investigations into the disaster, despite having said last year that he did.

Hogan-Howe said last year he had refused to change his statement after being asked to by another policeman, but in fact it has now turned out he apparently never made any statement at all.
