Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

A police civilian worker has won a £40,000 payout after being bombarded with emails by a male colleague.

Personnel manager Christine Jordan claimed she received "obsessive, excessive, undesirable and uninvited" messages almost daily from the man, who has not been named, the Daily Mail reports.

The Metropolitan Police agreed an out of court settlement, without admitting liability.

This was Jordan's second payout from the force - the 44-year-old was awarded £7,000 two years ago after a senior detective at Kensington police station described her as a "CID groupie". Jordan sued for sexual discrimination, won and returned to work.

The latest payout is on the condition that she does not return to the force.

Last year the Met footed a £2 million bill over officers alleging discrimination. ®
