This is the shocking moment an armed robber dragged a policeofficer out of her patrol car and threw her to the ground in a 'ferocious' attack while ransacking a Tesco Express. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/crime/cctv-shows-shocking-moment-armed-robber-drags-police-officer-from-patrol-car-as-he-is-jailed-for-14-a3976376.html
A police marksman who was removed from his job because he was partially deaf amid concerns he could have confused 'shoot' with 'don't shoot' has won a disability discrimination payout. http://dailym.ai/1GjEBov Firstly I do apologise for the source but couldn't find the story in BBC site. As for the story itself whilst I can see the tabloids having a field day with it, I'm pleased to see he won. No I haven't gone soft and swallowed the political correct pill :-) It's just I too have been subject to this awful hearing test that the Home Office recommend for the last 15 years.

I am sure there are more suitable tests in this day and age that are more effective at testing the range of hearing needed for the role.
