Scotland Yard reported that it has launched an investigation into the Labour Party concerning an internal dossier obtained by the radio station LBC last month.
"On Tuesday 4 September, the Met Commissioner was handed a folder of paperwork following a radio interview with LBC Radio in Leicester Square. The complainant alleged that the documentation included evidence of anti-Semitic hate crimes. The contents have been examined by specialist officers.
