The Home Secretary has announced an inquiry into “systemic failures” that allowed a serving Metropolitan police officer to abuse his position to kidnap, rape and murder Sarah Everard. “It is abhorrent that a serving police officer was able to abuse his position of power, authority and trust to commit such a horrific crime,” Priti Patel said today. “The public have a right to know what systematic failures, enabled his continued employment as a police officer. “I can confirm today that there will be an inquiry to give the independent oversight needed to ensure that something like this can never happen again.” Watch more videos on Independent TV: https://www.independent.co.uk/tv/editors-picks Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheIndependentOnline Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Independent Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/the.independent Subscribe to Independent Premium for exclusive content and live events: https://bit.ly/2MiOONB
