Met blocked from sacking officer who received child abuse video | News

Scotland Yard has been blocked from sacking a highly decorated senior black female officer after a judge agreed that her dismissal would undermine confidence in the force.

The Metropolitan Police challenged the reinstatement of Superintendent Robyn Williams, who was convicted of a sex offence after being sent an indecent video of a child on WhatsApp which she did not watch.

The force had also tried to overturn the reinstatement of an Asian female officer who pleaded guilty to assault and was given her job back after medical issues were taken into account.

Both attempts to have them sacked again were the subject of a judicial review against the Police Appeals Tribunal, which had replaced their dismissals with final written warnings.

Mrs Justice Heather Williams rejected
