Nine officers suspended in probe

Nine members of the Metropolitan Police's crime squad in Enfield, north London, have been suspended from duty in an anti-corruption investigation.

The force said two more officers have been placed on restrictive duties for the duration of the inquiry.

The investigation centres on the alleged mishandling of property. No arrests have been made.

In a brief statement, the Met said it "demands the highest levels of honesty and integrity from its officers."

A spokesman would not confirm any more details but said the suspensions would not affect day-to-day policing.
