Baby P detective sues ‘bully’ police after exposing child abuse and corruption
The former detective constable has begun a civil claim against Scotland Yard seeking damages for psychiatric injury arising from work-related stress.
Mr Wedger said he was bullied after filing an intelligence report alleging that some of his colleagues knew a prostitute was pimping out girls as young as nine but turned a blind eye.
