Britain’s national policing HQ is raking in millions of pounds by training cops from the Middle East – including 270 from Saudi Arabia, which has one of the world’s worst human rights records.

The College of Policing – which runs training courses for foreign officers – pocketed £2.7 million in the last three years from Middle Eastern countries.

The college, responding to a Freedom of Information request, refused to reveal specific details of the countries involved.
