Officer: I gave accurate account of 'Plebgate' meeting

Inspector Ken MacKaill from West Mercia Police

The Police Federation representative, Inspector Ken MacKaill from West Mercia Police, has told MPs, "I do not accept that it was a case of gross misconduct" over its account of a meeting between Andrew Mitchell at which he was present.

He said: "I gave what I believed was an accurate account of the meeting to the media but I subscribe to the apology that I should not have done it in the way I did".
