Comments on a Facebook group have led to 18 police officers receiving official warnings after they bragged about car crashes while on duty.
The 'I've Had a Pocol' group (slang for police collision) contained comments and photos from serving officers relating to accidents on the job.
The group, which had over 200 members, was shut down in January after an internal investigation.
"Ran over a drunk," said one posting, according to The Times. "I believe he has a permanent limp and a hefty payout. I was given a three-month holiday from job driving. Ooh, bummer."
Another member posted a photograph of a collision with a small white car with the comment: "I did him a favour. At 82 years old you just shouldn't be on the road and if you are, then most certainly don't go through a green light into the path of an innocent police car."
The officers involved have been given warnings for misconduct, which will stay on their permanent records and may harm future promotion prospects.
"The evidence on the website was clear to see," said a spokesman for the Metropolitan police.
"Fourteen officers received written warnings and four were given a speaking to. The warnings will remain on their records. Another five had unofficial words in their ear."
