UK: London's police force files reveal 'endemic corruption'
The file found organised crime networks in north-east London were able to infiltrate the Met "at will" to frustrate the criminal justice system.
The huge number of crates, revealed in a letter by Craig Mackey, the Met's deputy commissioner, indicates the scale of criminality inside Scotland Yard's north-east London units, which appears to have gone almost unchallenged since Tiberius was compiled 12 years ago.
Research suggests that only a tiny number of the scores of then-serving and former police officers named as corrupt by Tiberius have been convicted.
In a letter to Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Committee, Mr Mackey warned that the mountain of evidence against his officers is likely to continue growing. He said: "This number [of crates] is likely to expand as linked operations are identified."
