Another one. Not sure what happened to the Met officer who broke the Essex driver's jaw, whose trial was reported last week :?

Former PC James Gillies has been barred from ever holding a policing position again

A former Met police officer who assaulted a taxi driver while off-duty would have been dismissed from the Met, misconduct proceedings concluded today.

Former PC James Gillies was found to have breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour to the level of gross misconduct.

It was heard that on February 16 2020, former PC Gilles took a taxi without any money to pay for the journey.

He then became rude and abusive towards the taxi driver and his colleague before punching the taxi driver.

The incident took place in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Former PC Gilles had previously been based at the MetCC in Lambeth, a department responsible for receiving emergency and non-emergency telephone calls.

The evidence was presented to a panel and was chaired by the independent and legally qualified Mr Akbar Khan.

He found that had former PC Gilles still been a serving officer, he would have breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour and would have been dismissed without notice.
