PSNI officers suspended as result of sectarian and racist text messages

Four PSNI officers have been suspended following an internal police investigation which uncovered racist and sectarian text messages.

Whilst not revealing the content of any texts, ACC Judith Gillespie did make this remark during her press statement on the matter:

“I would be confident that if you had access to any of these texts, you would find them deeply offensive.”

I don’t suppose we’ll have long to wait in order to make that judgement ourselves….
