Orde vow over 'bent cop' probe.

MORE external investigators could be brought in to a probe into the awarding of police contracts, Chief Constable Sir Hugh Orde pledged last night.

He has identified a senior detective from another force to assist a Fraud Squad inquiry into corruption claims and warned more may follow.

Mr Orde said: "If it needs to be more independent I'll not hesitate to appoint more independent people."

Senior civilian staff are likely to face rigorous questioning about why a Belfast firm was stripped of a big contract to armour plate Land Rovers.

A High Court judge who awarded NI Sheet Metal Works pounds 400,000 damages expressed concerns someone in the PSNI may have undermined the company.
