Police to be told not to confer before writing up notes

The BBC:

Police officers in England and Wales are to be instructed not to confer before writing up their notes of serious incidents they are involved in.

The BBC understands guidance will be issued to forces once it has been approved by the home secretary.  At present, officers can pool their recollections before making individual statements.

Simply astonishing that this was permitted in the first place.
