The report of the Daniel Morgan independent panel is an impressive and solid piece of work – but it will take time to properly digest.
I am working on a couple of substantial posts on the report.
Here are other things about the report you should look at.
From the family:
“At almost every step we found ourselves lied to, fobbed off, bullied, degraded & let down time & time again…
…We do not want this burden to be passed on to the coming generations of our family”

This outstanding Channel 4 News item – a brilliant piece of television journalism:
After 34 years and five failed police inquiries into the murder of Daniel Morgan, a damning report has accused the Metropolitan Police of “institutional corruption” and putting its own reputation above proper investigation. @adavies4 reports.https://t.co/VK1AdMkV9a

A good question, well asked at the New Statesman:
There's a lot to write about the Daniel Morgan report, but wanted to lead off with the central question, which is how, if the panel's account of their dealings with Cressida Dick are true, she cannot and should not remain in her job: https://t.co/bHpOjltILo

And a wise and insightful post by a veteran home affairs journalist:
Why I was wrong about the #DanielMorgan Panel Inquiry….
… also Cressida Dick’s future …
….and what we must be on the alert for in other police investigations: https://t.co/Gmrmp5YAO3
