Met Police's Cressida Dick denies force is corrupt and says she didn't obstruct Daniel Morgan case

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick said she does not believe the force is institutionally corrupt.

She added that she did not obstruct the work of the independent panel looking into the Daniel Morgan case.

Dame Cressida is facing calls to resign after the publication of a damning report on the unsolved 1987 murder of private investigator Daniel Morgan.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick said she does not believe the force is institutionally corrupt

An independent panel led by Baroness Nuala O'Loan found that the Met had put protecting its own reputation above finding Mr Morgan's killer.

The panel's report said: 'Concealing or denying failings, for the sake of the organisation's public image, is dishonesty on the part of the organisation for reputational benefit and constitutes a form of institutional corruption.'
