GMP officer sacked for using ‘racially aggravated language’ to colleagues
A serving Manchester police officer has been sacked after making “offensive and derogatory” remarks to his colleagues.
PC Radoslaw Mikulski – who worked in Greater Manchester Police‘s (GMP) Trafford district, and had been on restricted duties since October 2022 – was officially dismissed from his role with immediate effect this week (19 February) following an accelerated misconduct meeting at GMP’s headquarters.
It comes after the police officer used “racially aggravated language” on two separate occasions.
The “offensive” language was used in private meetings to colleagues in September and October 2022 – with the first use referring to an incident, and the second about a member of the public.
After a debrief into the first incident, GMP advised PC Mikulski that this type of language was “inappropriate”, and he then went on to admit that his behaviour amounted to gross misconduct and subsequently apologised.
He did, however, explain in the hearing this week that his comments in the first case “referred to an incident, rather than a person”.
PC Mikulski’s actions were reported to GMP’s Professional Standards Directorate, who then carried out an internal investigation which led to disciplinary proceedings.
Chief Constable Stephen Watson – who presided over the hearing this week – agreed that the behaviour amounted to gross misconduct, and that PC Mikulski had therefore “breached the standards” of Equality and Diversity, as well as Authority, Respect and Courtesy.
In dismissing the officer, CC Watson accepted that PC Mikulski’s use of the derogatory term had not been “malicious”.
But he said that despite this acceptance, this type of language is still “highly offensive” and ultimately “falls below what the public rightly expects”, adding: “Racially aggravated language always constitutes an aggravating factor, and there is a risk of the trust of minority communities [in the police] being harmed.”
CC Watson also ordered PC Mikulski’s name to be added to the College of Policing Barred List.

Inside Greater Manchester’s White House-style mansion that’s on the market for £3.25m
One of the most prestigious properties in Greater Manchester has just gone on the market, and it’s absolutely stunning.
Oh, and it also pays a bit of a resemblance to that big presidential gaff over in the US too.
Officially being listed as for sale last week on Valentine’s Day (14 February) with the Hale-based branch of estate agency chain, Jackson-Stops, for a Guide Price of a whopping £3.25 million, this impressive White House-style mansion occupies a prime position on North Road in the highly-regarded Trafford town of Hale.
Estate agents say the one-of-a-kind property is “bespoke” and has been “meticulously refurbished” in order to become the gem it is right now.
But, what exactly does the £3.25 million price tag get you then?

Well for starters, like we mentioned, it’s located in the heart of Hale – which is one of the most sought-after residential areas in Greater Manchester – and that means there’s an enviably-wide range of amenities, including local independent shops, cafes, restaurants and bars, all on the doorstep, as well as several well-regarded local schools, and some really convenient transport links across the region and beyond, within an easy reach too.
Not only is it in Hale, but estate agents claim it’s sat on one of the area’s “finest roads” too, so that already goes quite some way to explaining the listing price.
Set well-back from the road behind electric gates, and positioned within what are described as “large private grounds” that span approximately half an acre, the beautiful detached family home is immaculately-presented throughout, and right from the first glance of the pictures, it’s clear too see it has been lovingly-maintained by the current owners.
The property has several spacious reception rooms, four bedrooms, and four bathrooms to its name.
As well as boasting flexible and open-plan living accommodations that are light, spacious, modern, and tastefully decorated, there’s also some seriously stand-out features – including a grand reception hall, and a dining area overlooking gardens.
The living kitchen/diner is another one of the property’s highlights, and is referred to as the “focal point” of the home thanks to its space, top-of-the-range integrated appliances, and bi-fold doors leading to the rear garden.

All four bedrooms are suites, too – with the “generous” master bedroom boasting an en-suite bathroom and even a dressing room.
The outside grounds of the home are just as impressive as the inside too.
To the front, there’s a private driveway and a double garage that provides off-road parking for several vehicles, as well as a lawned garden area, while to the rear, the expansive space only continues wiht another large lawned garden, and a wrap-around stone flagged patio that’s perfect for entertaining all year round.
Oh, and to top it all off, this is also a Freehold house, which is always a massively-attractive feature for those looking to make changes to the property and grounds in the future.

If you ask us, we’d say viewing is an absolute must to appreciate all this house has to on offer.
So, if you like the looks of what you’ve seen, and you just so happen to have £3.25 million sitting pretty in your bank account ready to spend on a new home in Hale, then you can get in touch with Jackson-Stops now and register your interest.
