BREAKING: Dawn Butler: ‘The Met Police is institutionally racist’

Sky, 10 Aug 2020
A Labour MP has called on the Metropolitan Police to end "institutional racism" after she and her black friend were stopped while driving in Hackney.

Dawn Butler said the "conspiracy theories" about the incident on Twitter show "the lengths people will go" to excuse racism and racial profiling.

Police admitted entering the car's license plate incorrectly and wrongly believing the car had been registered in Yorkshire - an example of the "assumptions" made by officers when they see black people driving cars.
