Eleven suspected sex attackers may never be brought to justice because a detective failed to investigate crimes properly.

Ryan Coleman-Farrow, 30, lied to rape victims that their cases had been dropped, avoided interviewing key witnesses, failed to get CCTV footage of attacks and did not send exhibits for forensic analysis.

The former Metropolitan Police officer bungled 13 cases in total, and yesterday pleaded guilty in court to 13 counts of misconduct in a public office.

The offences were carried out between January 2007 and September 2010, while Coleman-Farrow worked as a detective constable on Scotland Yard’s Sapphire unit, which deals with investigations into rape and sexual assault.
