FIVE police officers are being investigated for allegedly swapping vile jokes about Katie Price’s disabled son Harvey.
They are the second group of Met cops to be probed over such claims.
They have been placed on restricted duties following allegations that they shared “inappropriate material” on a WhatsApp group.
A source said the group based in Hackney, East London, is accused of sending vile "jokes" and memes about Harvey, 19.
The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards is investigating whether there is evidence of discrimination “relating to race, sex, sexual orientation, religion or belief and disability”.
Former glamour model Katie, 43, expressed outrage last week after it emerged a WhatsApp group of police officers based in Bexleyheath, South East London, allegedly mocked Harvey.
Eight cops were put on restricted duties.
Last night Katie — who has spoken of the abuse she and Harvey get online — said: “They should be dismissed. It should go to court. I would go and speak up and take Harvey.
“If you can’t trust the police who can you trust. They should all be named and shamed.”
Harvey, her son with ex-football star Dwight Yorke, has severe autism, Prader-Willi syndrome and impaired sight.
The Met confirmed last night that an investigation into the Hackney cops was under way.
A source said: “The allegations are shameful and the vast majority of officers and staff would be appalled by it.”
