A Bexley police officer has been sacked from the Met after she admitted assaulting other officers at a disciplinary hearing.

PC Sarinda Welsh, who was attached to the Bexley Borough, was accused of conduct that breached the standards of professional behaviour relating to "authority, respect and courtesy."

She was also accused of "discreditable conduct" at the hearing held on Wednesday, August 29.

On Wednesday, August 15, Welsh was sentenced to a 12 month community order after pleading guilty to two counts of assault and malicious communications.

She committed the offences during an incident on Tuesday, January 9, while off-duty.

As well as the community order, Welsh has been advised to attend alcohol dependency meetings and ordered to pay a total of £385.

The chairperson of the hearing decided Welsh should be dismissed without notice.
