Sergeant who dragged woman across floor is reinstated

A Policeman who was sacked after he was accused of throwing a woman head first on to a concrete floor will keep his job - even though his employers want to get rid of him.

Wiltshire Police were told today that they can't launch an appeal against a decision forcing them to reinstate Sergeant Mark Andrews.

An internal hearing had described his behaviour as "well below the standards expected" when he dragged Pamela Somerville across the floor of a Police station in Melksham in 2008.
