PC Sam Wiltshire, of the East Area command unit, was found to have breached standards of professional behaviour in relation to authority, respect and courtesy and discreditable conduct at a hearing that concluded today (Tuesday, September 22).

A Met spokesperson said Pc Wiltshire had “sent text messages containing threats of violence to his ex-partner and her family” as well as “messages which were grossly offensive or indecent”.

These matters were deemed so serious that dismissal was justified.
