The police officer at the centre of the 'Plebgate' affair has filed a defamation case against former Tory Whip Andrew Mitchell, the Metropolitan Police Federation has confirmed.
Pc Toby Rowland, who has made the claim, was the officer on the Downing Street gate when Mr Mitchell was forced to push his bike through the pedestrian exit.
Mr Rowland's account of the altercation that followed differs from that of Mr Mitchell, but the Crown Prosecution Service decided there was not enough evidence to show which one was correct.
