Public confidence in the police force has been shaken because of a "dangerous cocktail" including the "plebgate" affair and the results of the Hillsborough Inquiry, a senior Labour backbencher has said.
Keith Vaz MP, chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee, which will start an inquiry into police accountability, integrity, internal corruption and malpractice in January, said it is a "defining moment" for the service.
He called on Prime Minister David Cameron to host annual summits with senior officers and called for "a new Magna Carta" for policing.
In the Sunday Express, Mr Vaz said recent events had dented the public's confidence in the police.
