LONDON — Six police officers have kept their jobs despite being caught on film smashing up an unarmed suspect's car with baseball bats and a pickaxe handle.

The six were found guilty of discreditable conduct at the end of the first Metropolitan Police disciplinary hearing since a force whistleblower came forward three years ago with a series of damaging allegations against the Enfield Crime Squad. The anti-corruption inquiry investigated claims that officers assaulted suspects and took private property for their own use at a north London police station.
