On learning from your mistakes
The Metropolitan Police and the CPS, yesterday:
The Metropolitan Police have apologised to Colin Stagg, who was wrongly accused and jailed for the murder of Rachel Nickell on Wimbledon Common.
Assistant Commissioner John Yates said “mistakes were made” and added: “It is clear that he is completely innocent.”
The Crown Prosecution Service has also written to Mr Stagg expressing regret the case was brought against him.
The Cleveland (UK) Police and the CPS, yesterday:
“We are not reopening the investigation into Kyle Fisher’s death and we are not issuing an apology.”
