Former London Police Chief and his wife

In December 2008, he hit back, announcing that he would, for the second time in his career, be bringing a case of racial discrimination against the force. He has also successfully sued a number of newspapers, most recently in December 2009, when the News of the World apologised and paid damages after wrongly claiming he had “employed an illegal immigrant as his right-hand man”. But the jail sentence which has followed his latest court case seems likely to bring his lengthy police career to an end.
