A former senior detective from East Yorkshire has been sacked from his job with Humberside Police after being jailed for intimidation and stalking.

In March, Colin Andrews of Brough was jailed for 12 months, having previously been found guilty of aggravated stalking, witness intimidation, common assault and harassment by a jury at Manchester Crown Court. He was cleared of another three charges, including one of rape, by the jury.

Humberside Police has confirmed the 59-year-old former detective chief superintendent has now been dismissed from his job as a criminal justice unit manager following a misconduct hearing.

Andrews took up the civilian post with Humberside Police after retiring from frontline policing three years ago and was working in that capacity at the time of his arrest.

During his long career Andrews became one of the force’s most decorated police officers and helped bring a number of high-profile criminals to justice.
