South Yorkshire Police chief accused BBC of a ‘cover-up’


BBC, who over this live coverage of the raid received more than 760 complaints, refused to reveal its source to the South Yorkshire Police.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the following when reached for comment: ‘The suggestion that the source of this story being leaked to a media outlet was a member of the Metropolitan Police Service is one that we take seriously. An assessment will be made as to how this issue should best be progressed.’

BBC believes the story was for the public interest and while it didn’t want to reveal its source it claimed they didn’t get this information from anyone in the Police force.
