GLA: 'Clear corruption and negligence at Met Police'

The Greater London Authority, in making a payment of £50,000 to the family of Daniel Morgan, said: "it is beyond reasonable argument that sections of the Metropolitan Police Service failed to act properly in this matter, through corruption and negligence."

it is beyond reasonable argument that sections of the Metropolitan Police Service failed to act properly in this matter, through corruption and negligence."

Despite a series of investigations over the private detective's murder, in 1987, nobody has been brought to justice.

His family have claimed that he was close to revealing police corruption when he was killed.

Last May, Home Secretary Theresa May launched an independent inquiry to look at any police involvement in the murder and the possible role played by corruption in protecting those who killed him.

In its request to the mayor to approve this payment, the Greater London Authority said: "Irrespective of the outcome of the Panel’s inquiry, it is beyond reasonable argument that sections of the Metropolitan Police Service failed to act properly in this matter, through corruption and negligence."

It also said: "This payment is exceptional and recognises the efforts of the family, the particular nature of their campaign, the length of time over which they are campaigning, and the very real public benefit of maintaining this case in the public eye."

Daniel Morgan's family paid £50k over police 'failings'

The family of murdered Welsh private investigator Daniel Morgan will receive £50,000 for "bringing to light the failings of the Metropolitan Police."

Daniel Morgan, from Cwmbran, was found dead in a London car park in 1987.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, approved a request from the Greater London Authority to provide "financial recognition" to his family, for the "general social benefit" their campaigning has brought - and "the detriment which they have suffered in pursuing this matter."

Family 'disturbed' by revelations in Daniel Morgan case

The grieving relatives of a Welsh private detective murdered in London nearly 30 years ago say they are "worried and disturbed" by new developments in the case.

The Home Secretary Theresa May yesterday revealed possible links between an allegedly corrupt police officer in the Stephen Lawrence inquiry and the investigation into the murder of Daniel Morgan from Cwmbran.

Tonight, one of Wales leading experts on policing has called for a Royal Commission to investigate the growing number of controversial cases.

Expert: Major public inquiry needed into police conduct

An expert has called for a Royal Commission to look into police misconduct.

Martin Innes, Professor of Police Science at Cardiff University, told ITV News that a single major public inquiry is needed, due to to a number of continuing investigations into policing.

He was speaking after the Home Secretary Theresa May revealed possible links between an allegedly corrupt police officer involved in the investigation into the murder of teenager Stephen Lawrence, and the investigation into the murder of a Welsh private investigator.

Daniel Morgan was found dead in the car park of a London pub in 1987.

Prof Innes told our Correspondent Rob Osborne: "There must be a tipping point where you decide that we can't sustain this drip-drip-drip of corrosive allegations of misconduct."

"If these allegations do start to stack up, you will need a Royal Commission on the police, to address these issues, diagnose what the causes are, and put in place some sort of remedies to stop the problem happening again."

Daniel Morgan's brother calls for new investigation

The brother of a private investigator from Cwmbran who was murdered nearly 30 years ago has told ITV News that there should now be a full investigation into his death.

Daniel Morgan's brother, Alastair, made the call following a review into the Stephen Lawrence murder investigation, which found possible links to an allegedly corrupt police officer involved in both cases.

Daniel Morgan was found dead in the car park of a London pub in 1987.

Last year, Home Secretary Theresa May announced that a retired judge would lead a panel to look at any police involvement in his murder and the possible role played by corruption in protecting those who killed him.
