The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Wayne Couzens Met Police allegations being investigated, insists policing minister” – below is their description.

Policing minister Kit Malthouse said an investigation is under way into why allegations against Wayne Couzens earlier in his career did not affect his employment by the Metropolitan Police.

Mr Malthouse told BBC Breakfast: “One of the lessons that we will need to learn is the allegations that were made against him – where those investigations led to, why they did not pop up on his vetting or have any impact in his employment with the Metropolitan Police.”
