Police chief suggests non-English speaking victims of crime will be given priority with white middle class men at the bottom of the list
- Craig Mackey said police will prioritise elderly people and non English speakers

A senior police officer at the Metropolitan Police has said victims of crime who don’t speak English could be prioritised more during call outs.
Craig Mackey, deputy commissioner for the force, said the Met could decide who receives a face to face visit from the police depending how ‘vulnerable’ they are.
He added the method was an ‘absolutely feasible’ way to help the force cope following cuts to funding.
