Two police officers based in Westminster licensing unit have been arrested this morning in connection with an anti-corruption investigation.

The PC and sergeant were held on suspicion of conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office following claims of corrupt practices between licensing officers and local business owners.

Two men, both aged 48, were also arrested at addresses in Camden and Slough.

All are being questioned by detectives from the Met’s anti-corruption command.

A total of nine residential, business and police premises were raided by officers and searches of them all are ongoing.

DCI Tom Whorwood, investigating officer, said: “These arrests are part of a long running intelligence operation, led by our anti-corruption command.

“It was started in response to allegations of corruption by Westminster Licensing Officers and inappropriate relationships between the police officers and people running local businesses.

“At this stage it would be inappropriate to comment further on the specific intelligence that we have investigated.”
