Corrupt police chief Ali Dizaei has lost his job at Scotland Yard for a second time.

The 49-year-old, who has twice been jailed for corruption, was dismissed from his post as commander after an internal disciplinary tribunal.

The dismissal came after he was found guilty of misconduct and perverting the course of justice at a retrial in February.

He was sentenced to three years in prison but that was cut by the time he'd already spent behind bars after a conviction in 2010 was quashed by the Court of Appeal.

He won his job back at the Metropolitan Police but was suspended on a full salary pending disciplinary action.

Today, a spokesman for Dizaei said: "His case against the Metropolitan Police Service and his conviction is not over."

Dizaei is appealing the conviction and plans to go to take the Met to an employment tribunal next year.
