This news is a couple of weeks old, but still an interesting look at someone abusing their position for their own gain. Brian Jarvis, a Civil Enforcement Officer in Brighton & Hove has been sacked by NSL for telling motorists he would help with their appeal if they posed with him for a picture.
It appears to have been happening for two and a half years, resulting in over 200 pictures, which Mr Jarvis claims were for a book he was writing. It’s not clear why this only recently appears to have come to light, as there is a mention of NSL being aware of the situation for over a year.
He was quoted as saying:
“The pictures were for my book project. I told the drivers I could help them appeal by putting a note in my book.
“That’s why so many of them agreed to pose. But I didn’t give them any concrete assurances.”
“The pictures are fantastic, they’re really funny,”
