Police puzzle

I am astounded at Lothian and Borders Police’s swift move to transfer to other divisions Borders-based G Division officers and civilian staff accused of sending racist and sexist emails (Southern, February 28).

If they are not fit to serve in the Borders, why should they be foisted upon the Lothians? Or is this just a cynical publicity stunt to show that something is being done?
