Original Mitchell police probe decision 'worrying'

Former shadow home secretary David Davis said it was "worrying" that the decision to clear of gross misconduct the police officers involved in the 'plebgate' row had to be overturned by the IPCC.

He told Murnaghan on Sky News:

This is really worrying because it's not just about the issue of three policemen. It's about whether or not this sort of behaviour is seen as acceptable by the entire system and it looks as though, with these three forces, they thought it was acceptable. And frankly that's not just good enough for the British public.

– David Davis
