Scotland Yard says Sergeant Leo Boateng has appeared in court today following an alleged attack in November 2022 while he was off duty.

He’s been suspended and the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards has been informed.

He’s attached to the Central West Basic Command Unit which covers Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea and Hammersmith and Fulham boroughs.

He was bailed to appear at Inner London Crown Court on the 15th of February.
