Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Met apologise to philosophy lecturer who was ridiculed in strip search”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Scotland Yard has finally apologised to a university lecturer after officers used ‘sexist, derogatory and unacceptable language’ as she was strip-searched.

Dr Konstancja Duff, an assistant professor of philosophy at Nottingham University, sued after being subjected to the ‘degrading’ examination and ‘sexualised mockery’ at Stoke Newington police station.

She was held for intervening in the arrest of a boy of 15 by trying to hand him a card listing his legal rights in May 2013. The teenager, who has not been named, was later found to have a 6in knife in his sock in Hackney.

The Met Police has been forced to pay her compensation after shocking CCTV was released showing officers calling her ‘rank’, discussing her ‘smelly knickers’ and the amount of hair on her body.

The custody sergeant said ‘treat her like a terrorist’ and search her ‘by any means necessary’ during the incident.
