Something stirs in the fetid undergrowth near New Scotland Yard. Desperate to keep the lid on, the Metropolitan Police allowed Det Ch Insp Noel Beswick to retire, rather than face criminal proceedings. Beswick now looks likely to face civil action, instead. Beswick was implicated along with Det Sgt Gary Dalby (who is far from happy with this blogge) plus others, in the attempted fitting up of Jonathan Rees, the Vian Brothers.
Dalby did not help matters by having a torrid affair with Heather Stangoe. Hardly best practice for plod. Beswick’s boss was Det Ch Supt Dave Cook, who swore he would “be far from alone standing in the dock”. Is there a link between Beswick and Northern Ireland? (Goggzilla‘s part of the world). The Met fear damage, but their only hope is damage limitation, so, arrests in Downham Market soon?
Old Bill delenda est.
