Police officers charged with misconduct after photos taken at Wembley sisters murder scene

Two police officers have been charged with misconduct.

The offence relate to photographs taken and circulated in relation to a murder scene of two sisters in Wembley in June 2020.

PC Deniz Jaffer, 47, and PC Jamie Lewis, 32, both of the North East Command, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, May 27 for their first hearing.

Both officers have each been charged with one count of misconduct in public office.

The misconduct alleged relates to the investigation into the deaths of 46-year-old Bibaa Henry and 27-year-old Nicole Smallman in Fryent Country Park in Wembley in June 2020.

Sisters Bibaa and Nicole were with a group of people celebrating Bibaa’s birthday, in an area of Fryent Gardens which was about a five-minute walk from the Valley Drive entrance.

They are thought to have ended up alone by about 12.30am on June 6.

Police said they were in “good spirits” and “taking selfie pictures, listening to music and dancing with fairy lights” until at least 1.13am.

Calls to them from family at 2.30am went unanswered, police said.

Their bodies were later found, and a post-mortem revealed they died of multiple stab wounds.

The CPS London Complex Casework unit authorised the charges following a review of a file of evidence from the Independent Office for Police Conduct.
