A former chief superintendent has been dismissed from Humberside Police, following a misconduct hearing.

Colin Andrews retired in 2012, later rejoining as a manager in the force’s criminal justice unit.

He was sentenced to 12 months in jail in March after being found guilty at Manchester Crown Court of aggravated stalking, witness intimidation, common assault and harassment.

The hearing at police headquarters in Hull on Wednesday was held in his absence and he has the right of appeal.

Andrews, of Brough, East Yorkshire, was cleared of rape, another count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault by a jury in January.
