A Met Police officer who admitted to being a serial rapist and sexual abuser has been dismissed from the force after a misconduct hearing.
David Carrick was discovered to be one of the most prolific sex offenders in the UK after he pleaded guilty to dozens of rapes and sexual offenses – all while employed by the Met.
The 48-year-old attacked at least 12 women over an 18-year period throughout his career.
The first rape complaint made against him was not upheld – but a second one in October 2021 ultimately led to the unveiling of the predator.
The force has apologized to victims after it emerged Carrick had already come to the attention of the police across nine incidents, in which he had been accused of rape, domestic violence and harassment between 2000 and 2021.
