ByKatie May Nelson

A police misconduct hearing held after two sergeants were accused of setting up a "lads club" has been stopped.

Jamie Howard and Nicholas Grainger were subject to an investigation at Kent Police headquarters in Maidstone which began on Monday.

The hearing sought to establish whether the pair had breached standards of professional behaviour.

They were accused of creating a “laddish” clique in the office.

Both officers allegedly “abused their powers” and “undermined, humiliated or denigrated others” while in their roles as local police team sergeants in Medway.

The hearing was due to end tomorrow but has been halted for legal reasons.

A fresh hearing is due to be arranged at a later date.
