Bullying is so endemic at the Police Federation that it "rivals any popular soap opera", the Chairman of an influential group of MPs said.
Keith Vaz, who runs the Home Affairs Select Committee, hit out at the Federation for bullying its chairman Steve Williams, who accused senior colleagues in the organisation of bullying him in a letter handed to the Committee as part of their inquiry.
We were shocked by the scale of bullying that we found at the Federation's Headquarters. It rivals any popular soap opera.
It is disgraceful that any chairman should have been hounded out for championing the long-overdue reforms set out in the Normington Report.
