Police vans to be fitted with CCTV to uncover hidden abuse
Nina LakhaniHundreds of police vans are to be fitted with closed-circuit television cameras to address concerns about the "hidden" abuse of suspects.
Scotland Yard Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe promised the £4m refit of all Metropolitan Police vans during a meeting with the family of Sean Rigg, a mentally ill man who died in controversial circumstances in police custody in August 2008.
The Commissioner is also expected to announce an independent commission into the way that police respond to cases involving mentally ill people. It follows concerns that officers were left to deal with some of society's most vulnerable people without proper back-up from health agencies.
