A British Transport Police Officer has been given his job back having been previously dismissed from the F
The appeal case involving the officer was heard at a Police Appeal Tribunal.
PC Reynolds, who is based in London, was previously dismissed from the Force after answering allegations that he breached the standards of professional behaviour, namely Use of Force.
In April 2016, Reynolds was accused of using excessive force when making an arrest at Kings Cross station.
This is subject to an investigation by the IPCC (now Independent Office for Police Conduct).
A tribunal on the 5th April 2019 agreed that PC Reynolds actions were excessive however, they assessed that his sanction should be a final written warning and not dismissal.
