Assistant Commissioner Nick Ephgrave said it was “deeply disturbing” that a fellow officer was arrested.

“The arrest this evening is a serious and significant development. We will continue to work with all speed on this investigation but the fact that the arrested man is a serving Metropolitan Police Officer is both shocking and deeply disturbing.”
