Police officers are facing criminal charges over allegations that they tampered with evidence after shooting dead an innocent Brazilian at a London Underground station, The Independent on Sunday can reveal.
Police surveillance officers allegedly tried to disguise the fact that they had mistaken Mr de Menezes for Hussain Osman, the alleged terrorist being hunted for a failed suicide bombing on the Tube.

Phew! I though it’d be dead tonight because of the crappy weather but it was actually quite busy for a bit. And I had loads of requests! Eagle-eyed readers may notice that I even played Au Revoir Simone twice tonight as it was a happy/sad special occasion.
The best new track tonight was ‘Finer Feelings’ by Spoon. It’s from their new album, ‘Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga,’ and it’s one of the finest pieces of guitar pop I’ve heard this year. I’ve played it every week since I started DJing again and it’s a real grower. Spoon have this knack of making tracks seem spacious and yet cramming loads of melodic, twiddly flourishes into them. Good to see a lovely album like their newie cracking the proper US charts!
The best old track was The Emotions‘ ‘Best Of My Love.’ I mean, come on – who doesn’t like this track? The beat, the melody, the lyrics, the harmonies, that “Owww” that De La Soul sampled… Pop perfection!
