A 22-year-old man has been bailed along with eight others following a corruption investigation.

He was arrested yesterday at a residential address in Chadwell Heath on suspicion of fraud by false representation.

A detective constable and police officer were among the other arrests.

Officers from the Met’s Anti-Corruption Command were acting on intelligence that a luxury hire car company and other businesses were being used to launder money and process false insurance claims.

The detective constable, 32, who is attached to the Met’s intelligence bureau, has been suspended after being arrested on suspicion of money laundering, fraud by false representation, perverting the course of justice and offences under the Computer Misuse Act.

The police officer, 22, was arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation. He has been placed on local restrictions.

Six others were taken into police custody in central London following their arrests.

The police confirmed the status of the arrested officers is being reviewed and the IPCC is aware of the investigation.
