Policemen sacked for touching women officers


Two senior police officers who slapped and pinched the bottoms of their junior female colleagues during a night out have been sacked.

Special Ch Insp Andy Whitworth and former Special Sgt Gary Sims were off-duty when they inappropri­ately touched the women on a night out in Derby.

The British Transport Police officers have now been dismissed from their force after a disciplina­ry hearing found their actions amounted to gross misconduct. The officers, who were based in the Midlands, were subject to a misconduct hearing at BTP’S Force Headquarte­rs, in Camden, north London.
