Two women who were seriously sexually assaulted by London cabbie John Worboys have won their bid to get compensation from the Metropolitan Police.
Mr Justice Green ruled at London's High Court that the Met was liable to the women for failures in its investigation and damages will now be assessed.
Between 2002 and 2008, Worboys, who was jailed for life in 2009, carried out more than 100 rapes and sexual assaults using alcohol and drugs to stupefy his victims.
