Relatives of victims of Stephen Port to sue Met Police

The families of three victims of serial killer Stephen Port are to sue the Metropolitan Police over its failure to investigate their murders.

Port was sentenced to life in prison last month for the murders of four men.

Among his victims were Anthony Walgate, Daniel Whitworth and Jack Taylor.

Relatives Sarah Sak, Amanda Pearson and Donna and Jenny Taylor told the Victoria Derbyshire programme the Met "must be held accountable".

Donna and Jenny Taylor said they felt the Met played "a massive part" in their brother Jack's death.


Donna said: "Stephen Port obviously took Jack's life but we feel that the police didn't do their jobs, with any of the families.

"As far as we're concerned, they have played a massive part in Jack's death because if they had done their jobs properly, Jack would still be here today.

"There is no other way of looking at that and we feel we want them to be held accountable. We want the answers of why they didn't do this, didn't do that."
