A police constable has been dismissed for traffic convictions.

PC Yasmin Norris, attached to Merton Borough, faced a special case hearing on Friday, 26 January.

The chair heard that on 27 June 2017, PC Norris was convicted at Medway Magistrates’ Court of allowing someone else, who did not have the valid insurance to drive her BMW car between 31 August and 1 September 2016.

In addition, PC Norris was stopped by Police Scotland on 19 May 2017, for driving at 102mph in a 70mph zone.

It was alleged these actions amounted to a breach of the Met’s standards of professional behaviour in respect of, ‘honesty and integrity’ and ‘discreditable conduct’.

Her conduct was proven as gross misconduct and she was dismissed without notice.
