Former officer wins holiday case against Met Police

A former Met Police officer who sued the force for wrongly using its powers to investigate her has won a case over a breach of human rights and misuse of private information.

Ex-detective constable Andrea Brown was probed after going on holiday with her daughter while on sick leave for depression.

Speaking to Joanna Gosling, she described the action taken against her as "totally disproportionate, unnecessary and illegal."
