Concerns over "questionable integrity" of high-ranking Merseyside inspector and junior colleague
The Liverpool Echo reports "Concerns over "questionable integrity" of high-ranking Merseyside inspector and junior colleague"
They reveal that Merseyside Police bosses have 'long running fears' over the 'questionable integrity' of Inspector Mark Gorton and PC David Woods.
Both men remain employed following an internal probe by the Force's anti-corruption unit because there is not enough evidence to bring criminal or disciplinary charges.
I subsequently received an out of court settlement in 2013 with regard to this incident.
The ECHO also reports that PC David Woods runs a sideline business selling machetes, knives and realistic replica guns, as well as mugs bearing the Nazi insignia.
Military Mart, of which Woods is a co-director, sells weapons including bayonets and axes from a warehouse in Ormskirk.
