The MPS is currently in discussions with the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) about the work it intends to carry out.

The MPS take allegations of discrimination or bullying extremely seriously and all such matters will be thoroughly investigated. This may result in disciplinary action against an individual or, if applicable, the instigation of a criminal investigation.
