Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick Rinsed By AC-12's Superintendent Ted Hastings

Met Police Commissioner Cressida Dick Rinsed By AC-12's Superintendent Ted Hastings

In a short clip shared on Twitter, the police chief Cressida Dick is seen getting grilled by AC-12's Ted Hastings

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick has become the latest suspect to get a grilling by Line Of Duty's AC-12 in a new spoof video from Led By Donkeys. Watch below:

As shown in the short clip shared on Twitter, Ms Dick is asked a question by AC-12's gaffer, Ted Hastings, whose role has been reprised by Adrian Dunbar.

The Line of Duty character asks: "Who exactly does the Metropolitan Police work for ma’am? Our citizens, or Boris Johnson?"

To which, the police chief replies rather solemnly: "Downing Street."

So far, the viral vid has racked up a mega 1.8 million views in just two days.

One user commented: "@ByDonkeys knocking it out of the park again," while another added: "These are so well done."

A third simply tweeted: "Perfect. Thank you xx."


And Ms. Dick isn't the only person who is under AC-12's radar as earlier this month, the Prime Minister also got the grilling of a lifetime thanks to the popular Twitter account.

Led By Donkeys posted a video on 18 January featuring Superintendent Hastings, DI Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) and DI Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) in another clever spoof which showed them appearing to be grilling Johnson over the recent 'partygate' scandal.

In their usual style of showing on-screen references, the trio slowly shared their 'evidence' and put questions to the PM.

Arnott said: "LBD-1 is an email sent by your Principal Private Secretary, Martin Reynolds, inviting more than a hundred Downing Street staff to attend a party on the evening of May 20th 2020."

Cutting in with one of Boris' IRL interviews, the 57-year-old leader said: "All that is subject for an interview... er for an investigation by Sue Gray."

At this point, Hastings chimes in, telling him: "We've investigated it," adding: "And the facts are plain for everyone to see."


Fleming then takes over, explaining to Johnson: "Only an hour before the party began, Oliver Dowden, your Culture Secretary, made a statement remind the public of Covid regulations."

Hastings went on to tell him that, if there was a party, it would have been 'in breach of the Health Protection Regulations in operation at the time', then he goes on to use one of his lines: "As well you know."

Johnson 'responded' saying: "All the evidence I can see is that people have stayed within the rules. If that turns out not to be the case and people wish to bring allegations to my attention or to the police or whoever, then of course there will be a proper sanction."

After pointing out the sacrifices made by the public, Hastings told the Prime Minister: "But not you. Oh no, you partied."

He went on: "It wasn't just a case of one rule for us and another for them. It was more like 'no rules for us'."

Arnott then told him: "The only thing you're sorry about is you got caught."
