Police face changes after 'plebgate'

Police face changes after 'plebgate'
Ministers may use the controversy over 'plebgate' to push through changes to police officers' working practices.

A minister told the Times that the police's "foot-dragging and sense of entitlement over what are really Spanish practices makes it easier for us".

An unnamed Tory MP has also told the Telegraph that friends of Andrew Mitchell are "trying to rewrite history to score points against the PM" by blaming Downing St for its handling of the affair.

Tory Vice Chair Michael Fabricant today cast doubt on both Andrew Mitchell and the police's account of the events at No.10, tweeting: "I suspect the truth is 6 of one and half a dozen of the other."

"NO-ONE comes out of it smelling of roses: neither the police nor Andrew," he added.
