Colin Andrews sacked by Humberside Police

DISGRACED Colin Andrews has been formally dismissed by Humberside Police.


The former chief superintendent, 58, was jailed for 12 months in March this year after a campaign of harassment against two women.

The force, which stopped paying Andrews his salary on the day he was jailed, today confirmed he had been dismissed following a misconduct hearing.

JAILED: Colin Andrews.

A statement read: “Police employee Colin Andrews was dismissed from Humberside Police at a misconduct hearing held at Police Headquarters on Wednesday, June 3.

“In accordance with the organisation’s internal procedures, Mr Andrews has been provided with a right of appeal.”
Andrews, who was one of the force’s most highly decorated officers, retired as a chief superintendent in January 2012, before taking up a post as business manager of the Humberside Police criminal justice unit.

During his 37-year career with the force, Andrews helped to solve the murder of Hessle driving instructor Keith Slater – bringing his killer to justice 29 years after he was stabbed on his doorstep in 1988.

But his trial heard he was a “Jekyll and Hyde” character who carried out a campaign of harassment against two vulnerable women.

Andrews, of Brough, had denied any wrongdoing but was convicted by a jury of witness intimidation, aggravated stalking, harassment and assault in January following a six-week trial at Manchester Crown Court.

He was cleared of further charges of rape, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and another assault.
