6-month investigation

In the UK, 5 police officers are facing disciplinary action after sharing messages regarding Sarah Everard's killer.

The police watchdog says the officers in question are from the Metropolitan, Sussex, Dorset and Avon and Somerset forces, and posted "unprofessional remarks" about Wayne Couzens on social media.

A 6-month investigation found officers from other forces had also joined in the conversation.

Couzens - who was a serving officer - was recently jailed for life for Ms Everard's murder.

The 33 year-old marketing executive was arrested, then raped & murdered by the 48 year-old.

Couzens was sentenced to a whole life term for the killing.
