A police special constable has been sacked after failing to pay for items from a training college canteen, his former force said.

Adam Fanospour committed gross misconduct on a course at Sulhamstead Training College near Reading in January, Thames Valley Police said.

Detective Chief Superintendent Tim De Meyer, head of the force's professional standards department, said: "SC Fanospour's failure to pay for items that he took from the training college canteen fell way short of the standards required.

"His dismissal shows that we will investigate misconduct thoroughly and deal with it robustly."

Mr Fanospour, who was based at Abingdon police station, was found to have breached standards of professional behaviour for honesty and integrity and was guilty of discreditable conduct, the force said.

He attended the public misconduct hearing in front of Assistant Chief Constable Nicola Ross on Wednesday.
