A police officer based in Milton Keynes has been sacked after using his employer's fuel card to fill up a private vehicle.

PC Andrew Hiscocks was found guilty at a public misconduct hearing of six counts of breaching Standards of Professional Behaviour. The case was also referred to the Crown Prosecution Service and PC Hiscocks received a criminal caution.

He was dismissed without notice and has made arrangements to pay back the money to Thames Valley Police.

DCI Matthew Stone of Thames Valley Police’s Professional Standards Department, said the officer's actions were completely unacceptable and a flagrant abuse of public money during challenging financial times.
