Security for virtualized datacentres

An industrial tribunal has heard that a Transsexual police worker used Metropolitan Police computers to produce ads for an escort agency.

Angela Day, who was known as Keith Engvall before her op, was dismissed from her job as a civilian worker in Paddington CID when the allegations came to light. She is claiming unfair dismissal and sex discrimination by the police.

According to a report in today's edition of the Times, the tribunal was told that Day printed ads for her escort agency using police computer systems. The paper reports that Day admitted her activities to police officers but said she made only "a few pounds" or "the odd drink" for message services. Day, who is believed to be in her 50s, denies this and said the evidence against her is only circumstantial.

Oliver Segal, a lawyer representing the Metropolitan Police, said police were concerned that Day's business could bring the Met into disrepute. The hearing continues today. ®
