Met Police payout for rape complainant [much, much, better]

"The officers assigned to the case were part of Scotland Yard's specialist rape unit

A woman who made a rape complaint that was not properly investigated by police has reached an out-of-court settlement with Scotland Yard.

The woman reported the alleged attack aged 15, in 2005, but during the Met Police investigation evidence was lost.

The judge at the trial of her alleged attacker branded it a "disgrace". The defendant was later acquitted."

"They agreed to the out-of-court settlement with no admission of liability."
