Man struck unconscious and robbed in Crawley Memorial Gardens

A Sussex Police Inspector will answer allegations of misconduct during a public hearing in Lewes tomorrow (Friday, 24).

Inspector Anthony Lumb CL835, based at Brighton, is to face allegations that his conduct breached ‘standards of professional behaviour’.

Officials said it’s in respect of ‘authority, respect and courtesy’, ‘duties and responsibilities’ and ‘discreditable conduct’.

He is accused of forming inappropriate relationships with five vulnerable women and acted inappropriately on a number of occasions between 2002 and 2016.

It’s also thought he engaged in sexual activity while on duty during this time.

The public hearing will be held at 10.00am at the Restaurant Meeting Room in Sussex Police HQ, Lewes.
