A police sergeant sacked despite being cleared of assaulting a woman in a custody suite has to be given back his job after his employers lost a judicial review.
Wiltshire Police sacked Sergeant Mark Andrews after a disciplinary hearing into a woman being injured after being arrested for suspected drink driving in 2008.
The sacking from his £36,000 a year job came after his conviction and six month prison sentence for assaulting Pamela Somerville was quashed.
He challenged the sacking and won which would have forced Wiltshire Police to re-employ him. The police force asked for a judicial review of that decision but the application has been refused.
