In the case of murderer Wayne Couzens, who killed Sarah Everard, Harper highlights how the police referred to their colleague as a “former” officer to deflect blame.

Protesters outside Scotland Yard, marking a year since Sarah Everard was murdered by police officer Wayne Couzens. Spanning the three decades from the infamous Stephen Lawrence case to the shocking murder of Sarah Everard, Broken Yard charts the Met’s fall from a position of unparalleled power to the troubled and discredited organisation we see today. He shows how some reporters were thrown under the bus to save the executives and keep Rupert Murdoch from being too heavily censured. He also speaks to detectives who are willing to question why Couzens got away with suspect behaviour for so long – and they ask why the investigation into Couzens’ crimes has been shelved now he is behind bars. She was made to reveal her sources in the Met as Murdoch tried to shift blame from the managerial strata to the workers in newsrooms.They include criminals working as officers, ranging from the corrupt to the psycho­pathic, to sweeping cuts that make the job virtually impossible, huge rises in “new” cyber crime that require new skills and resources, and the drug laws that give criminals easy access to huge incomes, which in turn fuels other criminal activity.

And with this week’s news about David Carrick, a serving Met officer who has admitted sexual offences stretching back over a 20-year period, Scotland Yard face yet another crisis. Broken Yard is a riveting, eye-opening account of corruption, racism and mismanagement inside Britain’s most famous police force.He explores Operation Midland, the bizarre investigation into the claims made by the fantasist “Nick” – later jailed under his real name of Carl Beech – of a VIP paedophile ring which were deemed at the time by a detective superintendent to be “credible and true”. Whereas the likes of the Krays in the 1960s robbed banks, risky and visible, their equivalents now are doing cyber, and profiting from the drugs trade and trafficking.
