UK - A police constable will lose his pension after being dismissed for misconduct when he threatened to stand on a suspect's broken ankle.
PC David Wyvill, who was based at Bexleyheath police station and had been with the force since 1984, was ordered to resign at an internal disciplinary hearing at Tintagel House, London.
He pleaded guilty to making “inappropriate comments” – including threats to stand on the suspect’s broken ankle, run over his head in a police car and taunts about calling an ambulance.
Wyvill changed his plea to guilty of “misconduct in a public office” halfway through his trial at the Old Bailey and was fined £500.
