Black people are nearly six times more likely to be murdered in London than White people, according to a new report that found evidence of institutional racism in the capital’s police force.

The figure was revealed in a report on Tuesday that condemned the Metropolitan Police for exhibiting misogyny, homophobia and discrimination among its ranks. Led by former government advisor Louise Casey, the review was commissioned by the Met after one of its officers abducted and murdered Sarah Everard in 2021, but has also shone a spotlight on crime against minorities.
