Police Diamond Jubilee medal auctions 'disrespectful'


Police officers selling medals awarded to them by the Queen to mark her Diamond Jubilee are "disrespectful", police chiefs have said.
The medals were given to officers with five full years of service and have attracted eBay bids of more than £100.
One force said it may publicly name any officer found to be selling the medal.
A Police Federation spokesman said he was disappointed but thought the action may be the result of officers feeling neglected by the government.
In the UK, 450,000 of the emblems were awarded to eligible members of the armed forces, prison service and emergency service workers, including police community support officers.
