Notts Police is to appeal against an employment tribunal that ruled the force’s use of regulation A19 to require officers with more than 30 years’ pensionable service to retire was unlawful.

The force has lodged an appeal along with four other forces - Devon and Cornwall, West Midlands, North Wales and South Wales - who were all told their use of A19 breached age discrimination laws.

The ruling made three weeks ago followed a tribunal which took place last year, in which former police officers won their claims against ‘indirect age discrimination’.
