'Plebgate' committee 'not a good day for policing'

Andrew Mitchell deserves an apology from the police officers accused of giving a misleading account of a discussion with the former Chief Whip, the head of the Association of Chief Police Officers said.

Sir Hugh Orde told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show:

I watched every moment of the select committee and it was not a good day for policing.

The stark fact is the other three officers should have apologised in the same manner and style as the chief constables did.
