THREE more Met Police cops have been secretly punished for failing to report two officers who shared sick photos of murdered sisters Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman on WhatsApp.
The PCs admitted they received images from the scene – and failed to challenge the person who sent them, or report them to senior officers.
The officers – two women and a man – have been given written warnings by the force after a misconduct meeting was held behind closed doors.
Members of the press were not informed of the meeting, either before or after it had taken place, although the Met had prepared a statement in case they were asked about the hearing.
It comes after PC Deniz Jaffer and PC Jamie Lewis were jailed after taking and sharing photos of the crime scene in Fryent Country Park.
The men, who had been deployed to stand guard over Bibaa and Nicole's bodies, branded the women "dead birds".

They superimposed Lewis' face on one of the victim's bodies and sent the image to a WhatsApp group of 42 colleagues.
Both were jailed for two years and nine months after admitting committing misconduct in a public office between June 7 and June 23 last year.
All five of the officers now punished were based at Forest Gate station in East London.
Commander Paul Brogden said: “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are, as always, with the family and friends of Nicole Smallman and Bibaa Henry for their tragic loss.

“We are sorry for the truly despicable actions of PCs Jaffer and Lewis, and the behaviour of other officers, and how this has compounded the distress and suffering of the sisters’ loved ones.
“These matters, along with other high profile cases in the Met, have been an urgent catalyst for change.
"We’re working hard to begin rebuilding the public’s trust and confidence that police officers will protect and respect them.”
Danyal Hussein, 19, slaughtered Bibaa and her half-sister Nicole in a "frenzied" and "savage" attack as they celebrated Bibaa's birthday in a park in Wembley.
Hussein knifed Nicole 28 times and plunged the blade so hard into Bibaa that it broke.
They were discovered two days later after worried friends headed to the park to find them.
They were found lying with their limbs entwined in bushes.

The girls' mum Mina Smallman told BBC documentary Two Daughters, which aired last month, that the photos taken of her daughters after death caused catastrophic damage to the family.
“Any reserves we had were then cut off," she said.
“Before I heard about the selfies the police officers took, I’d never imagined what my girls looked like and then I would get these awful flashes.
“That’s my imagination but he saw it in reality.
