The Metropolitan Police received £22.7 million-worth of gifts and donations including cars, bikes and tickets to various events over five years.

Gifts such as football shirts, tickets to matches and gigs, and cars made by Land Rover, BMW and Jaguar were all donated to Scotland Yard during the five years from 2007.

Figures released after a freedom of information request  detailed hundreds of donations made to units across the capital.

The Association for Payment Clearing Services donated more than £10 million to fund a cheque and plastic card fraud unit, while the British Oil Security Syndicate gave £150,000 to fight crime in petrol stations.

There is no suggestion that any of the donations were improper.
