BBC News – Police apologise for ‘unjustified’ strip search
Kent Police have apologised for wrongly arresting, handcuffing and strip-searching a man outside a nightclub.
Alioune Haynes, formerly of Gillingham, who is a former diversity advisor to the force, also received an out of court settlement of £8,500.
He said he was searched at the Chatham club in 2006 because he was black and made a complaint against an officer.
In a letter to Mr Haynes, Kent Police Assistant Chief Constable Allyn Thomas said the actions were “unjustified”
