Calls for whip to resign
ANDREW Mitchell has 'no option but to resign' over his rant at officers in Downing Street, police representatives have said following a meeting with the Tory Chief Whip.
Ken Mackaill, chairman of West Mercia Police Federation, revealed that Mr Mitchell had again refused to specify exactly what he had said to officers guarding Number 10.
He said Mr Mitchell had repeated an apology for not treating officers with respect when they would not let him cycle through the Downing Street's main gate. Mr Mitchell has denied using the word 'plebs' in the altercation last month.
