West Mercia PCSO sacked for 'personal relationship'

A Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) has been dismissed for gross misconduct.

West Mercia said an allegation had been made towards the officer, based in Shropshire, relating to a "personal relationship".

The force refused to confirm the PCSO's name or gender, but said they had served for six years.

A hearing found the PCSO's behaviour had fallen "below the standards expected".

The decision is subject to the normal appeals process.
