Cressida Dick to receive £575,000 payout and £160,000-a-year taxpayer-funded pension
London's Metropolitan Police Chief, Cressida Dick has resigned after a string of controversies and failings.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan had threatened to oust Dick from her role, saying she wasn't doing enough to tackle growing accusations of misogyny and racism.
In a statement, Dick said that it has become clear that Khan "no longer has sufficient confidence in my leadership to continue."
Dame Cressida, 61, still has plenty to smile about as she will walk away from her post with up to three pensions estimated to pay out £160,000-a-year, plus a pay-off in the region of £575,000.
