The Cabinet minister at the centre of the â€œPlebgateâ€ row was â€œstitched upâ€ by police, an alleged whistleblower has said.
According to the Sunday Times (Â£..), a senior officer described how evidence was doctored against Andrew Mitchell, the former chief whip who resigned from Cabinet over the accusation that he launched a foul-mouthed rant at officers guarding Downing Street in September last year.
In an article in the Sunday Times, the whistleblower states: â€œOn the 18th September, 2012 Mr Mitchell had also insisted on being let out through the main gate. Following this [officer X] said to the other officers: â€˜Right, we can stitch him upâ€™.â€
