  • Highest number of fatal police shootings for 12 years

An investigator for watchdog the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) concluded that an MPS officer has a case to answer for gross misconduct and made the referral.

One of those shot and killed was the Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood who murdered a police officer at the Houses of Parliament.

There were six fatal police shootings in the 12 months to March 2017, making it the highest annual figure since 2004/05 and marking a two-fold rise on the previous year. "The deaths happened across six forces, and one was terrorism-related".

Tim Rogers, who is the PFEW spokesman on police pursuits said while there was no clear reason for the spike in deaths, the reduction in the number of roads policing officers had led to a more unsafe environment.

Twenty eight people died as a result of police pursuits in the last year, the highest level for eight years.

Owers said the rise in pursuit-related deaths is noticeable.

"We will be working with the National Police Chiefs' Council to look at the causes and whether any changes to police pursuit safety or training are needed", she said.

The IPPC data also showed there were 14 deaths in police custody - the second lowest figure it has recorded. None were in response to emergencies, and two-thirds of the people who died were passengers, bystanders or other road users.
