A tribunal has heard police officers from Devon and Cornwall were forced out of their jobs after 30 years of service by a "financial tsunami" triggered by a Government review.

Shaun Sawyer, chief constable at Devon and Cornwall Police, said they had "agonised" over the decision.

Five police forces are contesting test cases after hundreds of officers were forced out of their jobs.

The A19 clause allows for officers with 30 years' service to be forced out.

Five police forces - Nottinghamshire, North Wales, South Wales, West Midlands, and Devon and Cornwall - contest the allegations made at the Central London Employment Tribunal.

There was a financial tsunami facing public service and policing in particular”

At the Devon and Cornwall force it was decided that 700 police officers and 350 members of police staff would have to lose their jobs.

Mr Sawyer, who was deputy chief constable of the force at the time, admitted A19 was "indirectly discriminatory" on grounds of age and that legal advice was taken to make sure its use was "justified".
