MOPAC, embarrassed by its inability to ensure proper detention standards in police custody suites, has removed Archbishop Blake from the Bexley panel, after he revealed to the media, the scandal of an eleven year old being locked in an adult cell against the PACE regulations.

Archbishop Blake has issued a red alert warning, 'It is only a matter of time before someone dies in Bexley police custody.'

He has written about police mistreatment of those with emotional and mental heath problems, those who do not speak English and children. He states that detainees are deprived routinely of food, liquids, washing facilities, and exercise. Detainees are deliberately disorientated, unaware of the time, the procedures and their rights and entitlements.

He claims that staff operate a culture that detainees are presumed guilty and should be offered the least.

MOPAC ordered him to reassure the public that all was well at Bexley and said that such reassurance was the role of the ICV. Archbishop Blake challenged this dishonesty and when his attempts to reform police custody malpractice had met with systematic resistance and when he was shocked by the treatment of the eleven year old child in custody he went to the press.
