Plebgate Investigation wasted nearly £250K

The cost of the investigation into the Plebgate scandal has cost the tax payer almost £250,000.

The Metropolitan Police has spent that money focusing on what happened at the gates of downing street when MP Andrew Mitchell was accused of calling police officers ‘plebs’

Mitchell resigned his role as chief whip following the incident, however the investigation has focused on Police Officers giving false information to frame and discredit Mitchell.
