UK: Chief inspector wins £870k after suffering sexist bullying from female boss

Article here. Excerpt:

'A riot squad chief inspector has won a landmark sexism case against a female boss who objected to beers being in the work fridge and male officers walking around in towels.

Chief Inspector Adrian Denby won £870,000 after being unfairly treated by Met Deputy Assistant Commissioner Maxine de Brunner.

Mr Denby, 49, was removed from his role in charge of a tactical unit, after de Brunner launched a campaign to challenge the squad's macho culture.

Ms de Brunner became angry after seeing a police officer with just a towel around his waist in the office as he left the shower room, which was her 'pet hate'.

And she launched an investigation after beer was found in a fridge with a price list on the front.'
