Brooks' lawyer: 'Sinister motive to record meetings'

Duwayne Brooks' lawyer, Jane Deighton, has said that there would be no reason to record any of their meetings unless there was a "sinister motive".

Speaking to BBC Radio 4, Ms Deighton addressed claims that the Metropolitan Police secretly recorded officers' meetings with Brooks and his lawyer.

Scotland Yard told the the BBC that its directorate of professional standards was looking into the claim and that it was being treated with “huge seriousness”.
