A policeman who was jailed after causing two deaths during a 100mph pursuit is to keep his job after being released from jail, a West Midlands police disciplinary hearing decided yesterday.

PC Lezlie Collins, 43, was given a three-month prison sentence at Birmingham Crown Court in February after being convicted of causing the death by dangerous driving of his colleague PC Robert Dallow, 41, and innocent motorist Neil Homer, 20, of Oldbury, West Midlands. He was also banned from driving for two years.

Mr Homer's father Dennis said: "We are too upset to speak about this at the moment. I will give my side of the story but we have been treated disgracefully for the past 15 months. I'm not prepared to say anything further at the moment."
