The statement made by the Metropolitan Police on 6 January 2022.
In June 2021 police received an allegation of a racially aggravated malicious communication in relation to information posted on a messaging app.
Police spoke to the complainant and advised that for the investigation to progress a statement would need to be taken; for this to be admissible in any future court proceedings, this would need to be done in person.
In October, the complainant gave a statement to police and the investigation continues. A 50-year-old woman has been invited to attend for an interview under caution at a future date.
