No pressure so far. I've said I'll do interviews if they need them for the investigations but not tv/press/magazine stuff.
The Met have been fantastic so far. They've spoken to me 3 times now and each time they've asked if I'm happy speaking to a male officer about it and offered a female one if I prefer. (I don't mind at all). They've asked every time if I want signposting towards counselling of any kind.
And the last one who rang ended the call with 'Thank you for the information, babes'. Undoubtedly a slip-up and a lapse of professionalism but it made me smile
