A Suffolk police officer has been sacked for using excessive force during an arrest.

Police constable Edward Frazer was dismissed without notice following a misconduct hearing into an alleged breach of expected standards of professional behaviour.

The neighbourhood response team officer, based in Lowestoft, was found to have breached standards of creditable conduct; authority, and respect and courtesy.

He was alleged to have used excessive force when arresting a woman on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence in Lowestoft on April 21 last year.

A hearing overseen by a legally qualified chairman, Steven Evans, at Suffolk Constabulary headquarters, in Martlesham Heath, concluded that the officer had breached standards of professional behaviour.

He was dismissed without notice and has a right to take the case to an appeal tribunal.
