A trial is slated to begin at Southwark Crown Court on February 6, 2023.

Carrick was arrested by Hertfordshire Constabulary in October 2021, and  immediately suspended.

Prior to his suspension, he was attached to the Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command.

A Met Police spokesperson said: “We recognise the very serious nature of the offences that Carrick is accused of.

“The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) continues to monitor developments closely and misconduct proceedings will continue following the conclusion of the criminal case.

“We will continue to provide whatever support we can to Hertfordshire Constabulary and the Crown Prosecution Service as they prepare for the upcoming trial.”
