Tony Blair’s police bodyguards are being investigated over extraordinary claims they bought a device for launching rockets or grenades to protect the former prime minister.
Two members of the elite Scotland Yard unit which follows Mr Blair around the world are the subject of an official probe by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
Watchdog officials want to know why the officers took it upon themselves to purchase the weapon, apparently on expenses, for a trip to Gaza. It is alleged they were not permitted to buy such a device.'
