Met Commissioner: Some Clapham vigil critics spoke without knowing the facts
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick says some people spoke out about policing in the immediate aftermath of the Clapham Common vigil “without knowing the facts”.She told the BBC Radio 4's Today programme: “I think there are two things that come out of this report about the immediate aftermath.“The first is that people in public life, people in responsible positions, should stop and think before they judge, whoever they may be.”
The Metropolitan Police Commissioner has announced that the independent review into the force's culture and standards will be led by Baroness Casey of Blackstock.
Dame Cressida Dick said: "We want people to trust us ... people's confidence is less high than it should be because of the killing of Sarah Everard by a serving police officer and some other events; hence the independent review and a series of other measures to improve people's confidence."
