The former Metropolitan Police officer who blew the whistle on the manipulation of crime statistics says there are more surprises to come from him.

James Patrick (pictured), who has resigned from the force and is taking it to an employment tribunal later this year, told PoliceOracle.com that there is a lot he is unable to talk about prior to the hearing.

The former PC made headlines when he gave evidence to Parliament on claims his force abused crime recording rules to manipulate the figures, having already written online and in an e-book about his concerns over the path of police reform.

Earlier this year he posted a statement online saying his public statements and evidence had led him to be “effectively bullied” by the force after becoming a whistleblower.

In an exclusive interview with this website he said: "There are things which are going to the go before the tribunal, and some of it may come as a real surprise to people.

"There are a lot of things I can't say at the moment, including in terms of the way I was treated."

He also revealed much more, including:

The moment he decided to become a whistleblower.

His views on how they are treated by police forces.

The huge impact the revelations have had on his personal and family life.
