Victims’ families say police “have blood on their hands” over the handling of Stephen Port’s killings.

Stephen Port victims (L-R): Anthony Walgate, Gabriel Kovari, Daniel Whitworth and Jack Taylor

The way the Met Police initially handled the deaths of four men murdered by serial killer Stephen Port is to be re-investigated by the police watchdog.

Port is serving a whole-life sentence for the murders of Anthony Walgate, Gabriel Kovari, Daniel Whitworth and Jack Taylor in Barking, East London.

The deaths were not regarded suspicious until weeks after the fourth murder.

“Basic failings” were identified at an inquest last year in the way the police handled the four men’s deaths.
