A Met Police officer has been found guilty of gross misconduct for sexually touching two teenage girls at a nightclub in London.
The actions of PC David Henigan, of the Road Transport Policing Command, were described as ‘completely unacceptable.’
A panel decided Henigan’s actions had breached the ‘standards of professional behaviour’ amounting to ‘discreditable conduct’.
He was found guilty of sexually touching two girls aged under 18 at the misconduct hearing on Tuesday.
The inappropriate touching took place at a nightclub in south west London in 2019, with PC Henigan only leaving the force in February this year.

Chief Superintendent Simon Ovens, in charge of PC Henigan’s unit, said: ‘The actions of PC Henigan are completely unacceptable and at odds with the high standards that we strive for.
‘All women have the right to feel safe from sexual harassment and there is no place in our organisation for anyone who does not share the same values.
‘We welcome the outcome today that had he still been serving, PC Henigan would have been dismissed without notice.’
The guilty verdict will prevent Henigan from ever being employed by the police.
It comes amid calls for an enquiry into attitudes towards women within the UK police force. Met Officer Wayne Couzens (pictured) was handed a rare whole life sentence last week for the rape and murder of 33-year-old marketing executive Sarah Everard
He will also be barred from working within local policing bodies, the Independent Office for Police Conduct and the HM Inspectorate of Constabulary.
Had Henigan not already quit, the outcome would have also resulted in his dismissal.
