He quits af­ter emer­gency call-out led to an af­fair

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By RACHEL SPENCER

A COP­PER called out on an emer­gency has been ac­cused of hav­ing an af­fair with the wife of the man who phoned 999.

Randy Dou­glas Dish­ing­ton, – nick­named PC Dishy – has now re­signed af­ter a dis­ci­plinary hear­ing last week heard how he chat­ted up Re­becca Godley, 41, at her house in Stir­ling.

Her hus­band Tony Godley, 44, had called in po­lice in a bid to straighten out his 17-yearold step daugh­ter who he claims was go­ing off the rails.


But when PC Dishy ar­rived he ended up swap­ping per­sonal num­bers with Re­becca and the pair then be­gan to have an af­fair, the hear­ing was told.

Tony also com­plained that Dish­ing­ton had given lifts to Mr Godley’s 12-year-old son in his po­lice car.

This in­cluded pick­ing him up from school, and driv­ing him home, as well as al­legedly on an­other oc­ca­sion driv­ing him in the car while he had his blue lights on.

The sec­ond com­plaint came from Kayleigh’s fa­ther, Jamie Hut­ton, 44, of Fallin, near Stir­ling.

He told the hear­ing at Dunblane Po­lice Sta­tion that Dish­ing­ton pro­vided a false al­ibi for Kayleigh, whom Mr Hut­ton ac­cused of go­ing round to his house when he was out and tak­ing cig­a­rettes and £1,350 in cash.

He said: “I was a wit­ness at the hear­ing, and Dish­ing­ton gave an al­ibi for Kayleigh, say­ing she wasn’t there, but the CCTV shows she clearly was.

“He be­haved ir­re­spon­si­bly and brought the force into dis­re­pute.”

A Cen­tral Scot­land Po­lice spokesman said: “Fol­low­ing a mis­con­duct hear­ing, an of­fi­cer has re­signed from ser­vice.”
