Beefeater compensated over 'unjustified' dismissal
Friday 03 September 2010
A Beefeater at the Tower of London who was sacked for allegedly harassing the first female Yeoman Warder has been offered an apology and a financial payout.
Mark Sanders-Crook was dismissed last November after an investigation into allegations of bullying against Moira Cameron, who said he swore frequently in her company, avoided her presence and acted as the "ringleader" behind her unfair treatment.
Historic Royal Palaces reached a settlement with Mr Sanders-Crook after he launched employment tribunal proceedings. A spokeswoman said: "Since the dismissal of Mr Sanders-Crook and the subsequent internal appeal, Historic Royal Palaces has reviewed this matter and has concluded that dismissal was not justified."
The figure awarded to Mr Sanders-Crook is thought to be in the region of £50,000.
