Beefeaters sacked for harassing female colleague

Two Beefeaters at the Tower of London have been dismissed after they were found to have harassed Moira Cameron, the first female Beefeater.

The sackings were the result of an internal investigation that was launched earlier this month after Cameron complained that she had been subjected to a bullying campaign by some male colleagues.

The case against a third Yeoman Warder was not proven.

A Tower of London spokesman told the BBC: “When the allegations arose, the Tower of London immediately initiated a thorough investigation, in line with harassment policy procedures.

“In light of the evidence that emerged, the investigation concluded that the allegations had foundation and that disciplinary action was appropriate.”

The two sacked Beefeaters have the right to lodge an appeal within a week, and the third will return to work shortly.

Another employee at the Tower received a police caution earlier this month after defacing Cameron’s Wikipedia page.
