Police officer accused of raping and physically assaulting two female colleagues

The UK's Metropolitan Police is investigating allegations a serving male officer raped two female colleagues. Three years after the allegations were made, a BBC investigation with the Bureau of Investigative Journalism found that the officer was not charged or suspended, but will face a misconduct hearing.

An investigation by Essex Police and the Crown Prosecution Service was then reportedly dropped in 2019 because of a lack of evidence. One of the women, whose name was changed to ‘Holly’, by the BBC to pr...
