A Metropolitan Police officer has been suspended from duty over allegations of racism.
Scotland Yard said the male sergeant was said to have made a racist comment in front of other officers on 9 May in north London.
He was then reported by one of his colleagues to his supervisor. No-one from the public was involved and it has been referred to the police watchdog.
Racism and racist language is totally unacceptable. The action taken in response to this allegation demonstrates the Met's determination to act swiftly and to support those that challenge others when alleged racist language is used.
