A SHAMED former vice cop has appeared in court in a bid to overturn a conviction for soliciting a prostitute.

Metropolitan policeman Mark Daniel, 34, of Grimwade Close, Brantham, was found guilty at South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court last month after police found him in a car with the prostitute on Hadleigh Road industrial estate.

He had denied an offence of soliciting but after being found guilty at a day-long trial he was handed a £235 fine and his job as

a detective sergeant with the Met in Hackney, east London, was under threat.

Daniel appeared at Ipswich Crown Court today for a preliminary hearing in an appeal case.

Daniel will appear again at Ipswich Crown Court for the appeal on November 19.
