Police officers are not adhering to the legal guidance on the power to stop and search, with the result that more than a quarter of searches conducted are "unlawful" according to a review by police watchdog Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC).
HM Inspector of Constabulary Stephen Otter said:
Officers are not adhering to the guidance on too many occasions. It has slipped down the chief constables' agenda since the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry report.
