A POLICE officer among those who failed a murder victim faces new allegations of misconduct.

PC Mills was found to have unfairly treated Shana Grice, who was murdered by her ex Michael Lane in Mile Oak in 2016.

Lane had stalked the 19-year-old, but when Ms Grice reported his behaviour to police in the months before, she was not taken seriously.

PC Trevor Godfrey had fined her £90 for wasting police time, while other officers also did not spot the danger signs.

An investigation by the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC) probed the conduct of 14 officers, including PC Mills.

He was found to have committed gross misconduct at a disciplinary hearing in April, and has resigned from the force.

Today it was revealed that he is facing another set of claims against him at a special “fast-trak” misconduct hearing.

According to the force he faces accusations relating to his honesty and integrity, his duties and responsibilities, and his discreditable conduct.

The misconduct hearing will be held today at police headquarters in Lewes.
