Porn Inquiry Police Won't Face Charges

9 February 2014, 10:10

Three Downing Street police officers arrested on suspicion of accessing extreme hardcore pornography on their mobile phones will not face criminal charges.

The Metropolitan Police Constables who are part of the Diplomatic Protection Group were arrested on December 19th.

They were questioned at a central London police station and had their homes searched.

The officers are from the same unit that was at the centre of the so-called Plebgate affair, which led to the resignation of chief whip Andrew Mitchell.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said : "Three officers have been informed there will be no further action regarding criminal matters but they remain subject to a misconduct investigation."

A decision has yet to be made by the CPS regarding criminal charges against a fourth officer who was later interviewed about the images, which were of an "extreme sexual nature", but do not involve children.

One of the four officers was suspended and three put on restricted duties after the investigation was launched.

Police in the DPG are the officers who search visitors and vehicles heading into Downing Street and New Scotland Yard.
