Police urged to erase DNA record
A Worcester firefighter who was arrested after a fatal crash is campaigning to have his DNA sample taken off the National Police Database.
Mathew Repton was held in December 2008 after a driver crashed into the parked fire engine.
He said keeping his DNA record on the National Police Database was tarring him with the same brush as criminals.
"I am not a common criminal, I was doing my job," he said.
"If it was standard practice that everyone was on the database that would be a different matter. As an innocent person that is wrong."
