A Hillingdon police officer has been sacked from the force and banned from driving after failing to take a blood test.
Former Police Constable, Anil Kaul, who was attached to Hillingdon borough, was formally dismissed from the Metropolitan Police Service after a special case misconduct hearing.
Kaul was fined £1,120 and disqualified from driving for 15 months, after he was found guilty of failing to provide a sample of blood for analysis, on Thursday February 16, at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
After the officer's conviction, he faced allegations in respect of the Standards of Professional Behaviour under "discreditable conduct" and "authority, respect and courtesy".
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "The chair found both allegations proven, and that the officer had breached the standards of professional behaviour in such a serious way that this amounted to gross misconduct.
"The chair determined that the only appropriate sanction was dismissal without notice."
