The three Newham police officers currently under investigation over allegations of racist abuse have now been suspended from duty.

The incidents are said to have happened between January 6 and March 15 this year.
The officers have now been referred to The Directorate of Professional Standards, the body responsible for investigating complaints against police officers, and the IPCC.
A Met Police spokesman said: “The status of officers under investigation is regularly reviewed.
