A police detective working in the Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge tri-borough area has been sacked with immediate effect from the Metropolitan Police after he was found to have committed gross misconduct.
A misconduct hearing heard that Det Con Mark Eve, attached to the East Area Command Unit, had tried to falsify evidence, used racially offensive language, and copied and shared a personal photograph of a colleague.
A panel found that each of these allegations was proven, and that they amounted to gross misconduct.
It was also heard that Mr Eve had possessed offensive weapons, interviewed a suspect at home without the correct authority, conducted unauthorised surveillance and drank alcohol on duty.
Each of these allegations was also proven, but the panel deemed these as a slightly lower level of misconduct.
