It comes after the actions of five officers have been referred to the IPCC within a week.

The 1999 MacPherson report which Dr Stone advised on, found the Met was institutionally racist and made 70 recommendations.

With three separate incidents of alleged racism by officers as well as controversy over the shooting of Mark Duggan, Dr Stone has now told the Commissioner: “Enough of analysis! Enough of definitions. Enough of pilot schemes. Tell everyone under you just to stop it.  Then tell them again and again, year after year.”
