The officer who led a disastrous Scotland Yard investigation into false VIP sex abuse allegations is to face an investigation for gross misconduct, the Mail reports. Steve Rodhouse, a former deputy assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police who now serves as deputy head of the National Crime Agency, ran an operation that probed invented claims that MPs and generals abused and murdered children. The operation was largely based on claims made by Carl Beech, who was jailed in 2019 for making false allegations. The Mail says the development has “plunged Britain’s biggest police force into yet another crisis”.
