The rhino whip affair.

Recommended Posts

I was once having a quite Sunday Lunch drink in The Nags Head Pub on Shalesmoor when i got into a conversation with a bloke who told me he was the man who Sheffield police plain clothes section had beat up with a rhino whip .

Apparently the incident made national headlines any one remember the outcome.

Most probably the same as most enquiries...a massive hush up.

 

I do remember a huge furore that made national headlines but i cant remember the outcome i'm afraid.

Have a look at this thread Cuttsie.

Cheers Jim it did not come up when i started this thread maybe it will merge ,although people on that one seem to have got the Rhino job mixed up with the Sheffield gang wars.

Of the five men concerned in the crime squad on the night of March 14 the appellants were dismissed and ex-Detective-inspector Rowley, Sergeant Hird, and Detective-constable Rowlands were all subsequently reprimanded by the Chief Constable on a rather limited charge.

The Chief Constable had consulted the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Sergeant Hird was put into uniform, which meant some pecuniary loss, and Rowley and Rowlands resigned.
