Labour reiterate call for independent Plebgate inquiry

It is essential that there is a full and independent investigation into what happened in Downing Street as we and others called for three months ago.

These very serious allegations involving a police officer must be rigorously investigated. And the full facts must be set out.

None of the reports from the Government in September raised the possibility of a witness nor is it clear whether this was checked out at the time or had any influence on events.

– Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper
