Judgment has been delivered in the widely publicised proceedings against the Chief Constable of Northumbria Police by the former Director of Legal Services, Denise Aubrey, following her dismissal. All Ms Aubrey’s claims were dismissed including her claims for sex discrimination, harassment, victimisation, disability discrimination, whistleblowing and unfair dismissal.

The case gave rise to widespread publicity in May 2016.

Ms Aubrey has appealed the dismissal of her claims.
