Scotland Yard is launching a drive to recruit more officers who speak a second language.

The Metropolitan Police hopes to bolster the number officers able to speak and understand 14 languages which are widely used by communities across London.

Yoruba, Hebrew, Arabic, Hindi, Punjabi, Italian, German, Turkish, Greek, Spanish, Polish, Portuguese, Sri Lankan and Bengali will be the focus of the month-long pilot campaign which starts today.

Metropolitan Police commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan said almost 300 languages are spoken in the capital.

He said it will help boost confidence, help to solve crime more effectively and support victims and witnesses.
