Metropolitan Police officer Keith Wallis, who was today sentenced to 12 months in jail for lying about witnessing the infamous 'Plegate' incident involving Andrew Mitchell, wrote a drunken email to his MP falsely claiming that the former chief whip shouted "You ******* plebes" at officers.
Mr Mitchell said in a victim impact statement: "The existence of the emails contributed to my acute demoralisation and sense of isolation. They were therefore a contributory factor in the events which led to my resignation."
