13 PCSOs have been sacked by South Wales Police over claims they cheated on their final exams.

It follows a three month investigation by the force.

The group - aged between 22 and 35 - sat tests at South Wales Police headquarters in Bridgend.

These were the last few exams the trainee officers would have to do.

After an investigation by the force - 13 have been sacked and one has resigned.

The tests included maths problems, logic and spelling tests.

Mark Milton, director of Human Resources at South Wales Police, said: "The force will not tolerate breaches of ethical standards.

"South Wales Police prides itself on its ethical standards and integrity."
