New IPCC 'plebgate' investigation launched

Chairwoman of police watchdog the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) Dame Anne Owers said it will hold its own investigation into the claims that the two officers gave "misleading" evidence to the committee.

She said that both the IPCC inquiry into the original Sutton Coldfield dispute, and the latest claims over evidence, should be finished by Christmas.

We are going to wrap all of this up together. The question of what the officers did or didn't say in front of this committee is a relatively simple matter to deal with.

We anticipate that we will be able to complete both investigations this side of Christmas.
