Ex-South Yorks Chief Supt Donald Denton, 83, retired Det Chief Insp Alan Foster, 74, and Peter Metcalf, 71, an ex-police solicitor, are charged with trying to pervert the course of justice.

Yesterday, Sarah Whitehouse QC, prosecuting, said “The vetting process was targeted at reducing or removing references to the failings by the South Yorkshire Police.”

All three deny the charges and the trial at the Lowry theatre in Salford continues.
