London police apologize to sprinter for ‘distress’ in search

LONDON (AP) — London police have apologized to British sprinter Bianca Williams after officers stopped and searched her car over the weekend. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick has told the British parliament that police apologized for “the distress it has clearly caused her.” Dick says reviews of the evidence found no apparent misconduct during the search but that the Metropolitan Police had voluntarily referred itself for review by the Independent Office for Police Conduct. Williams was a sprint relay gold medalist at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and 2018 European Championships.
