The Metropolitan Police officer suspected of kidnapping and murdering Sarah Everard in London has been taken to hospital for a head injury sustained while in custody.

Scotland Yard said the suspect, who is in his 40s, was treated, discharged and returned to the police station where he is being held.

He was found collapsed and unconscious in his cell on Thursday after suffering serious head wounds, according to the Sun.

“He has since been discharged and returned to custody. We are not prepared to discuss further.”
