The mayor of London has said the gender or ethnicity of the next commissioner of the Met Police “doesn’t matter” and that he is “more concerned about their ability to get it”.

Sadiq Khan has said he is “less concerned about gender, ethnicity and religion” of the candidates for the capital’s top policing job, while stressing the importance of the “values” needed to bring about big changes within the beleaguered force.
