“She was kicked unconscious in the attack and needed hospital treatment for head injuries and extensive bruising.”
After a Newsnight investigation (*) aired 22/10/20, the Met has apologised to the women. A spokesperson said the incident “should have been escalated and prioritised at an earlier stage”. It added “there was a delay in the necessary follow-up enquiries being made just after the incident, and this hindered the subsequent investigation”. “This shouldn’t have happened, and we are sorry for letting the victims in this case down. This was an appalling attack which should have been investigated with greater urgency.”
