West Yorkshire Police race row tribunal is postponed

A West Yorkshire Police employee who is claiming unfair dismissal has had his tribunal postponed.

Gary Marsden I'Anson, 48, from Morley, was arrested and sacked over his alleged association with the British National Party and for using work time to compile right-wing CDs and DVDs. He was arrested at his home on suspicion of possession of written material with intent to incite racial hatred – which he vigorously denied. No charges were brought.

The singer-song writer, who has worked with the police for 23 years, is claiming unfair dismissal and discrimination or victimisation on grounds of religion and belief against West Yorkshire Police. The employment tribunal was halted on its third day because of technical difficulties.
