A GMP Spokesperson said: "We hold our officers and staff to the highest possible standards, and we know the majority of our workforce carry out their duties with honesty, integrity and pride. Misconduct of any kind, at any rank, is addressed.
"When allegations of gross misconduct are made, swift and robust action is taken to ensure we maintain the confidence of the public we serve. We remain committed to being as open and transparent with the public as possible in our dealings with misconduct allegations and findings to demonstrate our approach to behaviour which is inconsistent with what is expected of us at GMP.
"In this case, these two officers failed to provide the service our communities expect and they have since been dismissed without notice. We will continue to take action against any officers or staff who are proven to have failed to carry out their duties to the highest standard we expect."
