Acquitted Pc can return to work

Pc Mark Jones
Pc Jones was found not guilty of racially aggravated assault after a trial

A suspended member of Scotland Yard's territorial support group has been told he can return to work after he was cleared of racial abuse and assault.

Pc Mark Jones, 42, can undertake restricted duties following his acquittal at Kingston Crown Court.

He remains under investigation by the force's professional standards department.

He was among a team of officers tried over an incident in west London, when two teenagers claimed mistreatment.

Two of Pc Jones' colleagues, Sgt William Wilson, 52, and Pc Neil Brown, 33, have also been told they can return to restricted duties from suspension.

They were found not guilty of misfeasance in public office, as were two other officers who were not suspended.
