Home Secretary Theresa May has today announced an independent inquiry into the notorious unsolved murder of a Thornton Heath private detective.
A judge-led panel is to scrutinise failed police investigations into the death of 37-year-old Daniel Morgan, who was brutally killed with an axe in a Sydenham pub car park in March 1987.
The Metropolitan Police has said there is no prospect of solving the crime, despite five separate investigations in 15 years, and admitted corruption at the force had been a “debilitating factor” in the failure to bring justice.
