Two senior officers due to face gross misconduct hearings over their handling of the serial sex attacker Kirk Reid have been been promoted, it emerged today.

three were let off with written warnings after what the IPCC today
described as a “litany of delay and prevarication” by the Met which
meant key witnesses were no longer available to testify against them.
