“I will not be in four months … I have a broken heart “: policewoman signed illness with full pay after splitting with his married colleague
A Met Police officer has been signed off sick with a ‘broken heart’ for four months after being dumped by a married colleague, it was claimed today.
The detective is believed to have been left devastated when her lover went back to his estranged wife.
The unnamed pair are said to have set up home together after meeting at work when the male officer’s marriage had broken down.
But after setting up home together in a 17th-century coach house worth £500,000, he went back to his jilted wife.
The two officers’ relationship lasted just three months.
The mother-of-one was apparently signed off on full pay with stress and failed to return to her £45,000-a-year job.
The Sun has reported that Scotland Yard is now offering full support to the female detective.
A source told the paper: ‘The organisation is not leaving her to mope around at home, drowning her sorrows. She’s being regularly checked and visited.’
Pete Smythe, chairman of the Met Police Federation, told MailOnline: ‘If she is signed off she will have been seen by a doctor who will have agreed she is not fit to work.
‘As far as the rules are concerned she will be on full pay until six months, then half pay thereafter until 12 months when it will go down to nothing.
‘There are procedures where the Met could sack her, but it is fairly difficult after four months.
‘I imagine the Met are offering her counselling. I am not aware of a case like this before.’
Former Met Commander John O’Connor branded the situation ‘ludicrous’.
He said: ‘Four months is a long time to be off with a broken heart. It’s not as if she’s suffering from the grief of losing a loved one.’
A Met Police spokesman said the force does not comment on personal matters.
