WHITE MAN WINS PAYOUT OVER POLICE JOB RACE BIAS

A police force that broke sex and race discrimination laws with its recruitment policy has paid an undisclosed sum to a disappointed job applicant who was rejected solely because he was a white man.

Avon and Somerset police discarded nearly 200 applications from young white men after a recruitment drive to give greater opportunity to women and ethnic minority candidates. It claimed that white males were "over-represented" on the force.

The Chief Constable, admitted that it had been unlawful for the force to select applicants solely on the grounds of race and sex.
