Jan Irvine says she will continue to fight Lothian and Borders Police

A TRANSSEXUAL who claims she was bullied out of her job as a traffic warden has vowed to keep fighting after failing in her latest bid to sue police for unfair dismissal.

Jan Irvine – formerly Ian – from Bonnyrigg, worked with Lothian and Borders Police before taking up a post in its communications centre.

She first “came out” in 2001, and two years later had a sex-change operation.

Ms Irvine (59) has already taken the force to two separate employment tribunals, claiming she was “forced” out of her job after alleged bullying she said surrounded her sex-change. The first hearing, on the grounds of sex discrimination, was time-barred, as some of her claims went back too far.
