The Met Police has lost an appeal at the Supreme Court against two victims of black cab rapist John Worboys who won compensation for its failings.

The women were raped by Worboys in 2003 and 2007 and said their treatment by police, who failed to believe their reports, caused them mental harm.

The Supreme Court unanimously dismissed the police's appeal.

The women are also separately pursuing a judicial review of the Parole Board's decision to release Worboys.

Worboys was able to continue to attack women until he was convicted in 2009, when he was jailed for life for 19 offences, including one rape and five sexual assaults.

The Met believe he may have attacked more than 100 women.
