TWO Beefeaters have been sacked from The Tower following an allegation of harassment of the first woman yeoman warder Moira Cameron.

The case against a third Yeoman Warder has been dismissed.

The two former soldiers who have been sacked have seven days to lodge an appeal against their dismissal.

In a statement Historic Royal Palaces which run the popular tourist destination said: "When the allegations arose, the Tower of London immediately initiated a thorough investigation, in line with harassment policy procedures. In light of the evidence that emerged, the investigation concluded that the allegations had foundation and that disciplinary action was appropriate."

The third member of staff will be returning to work shortly.
