Simmons, nicknamed "Porky", was a fireman at Borough Street Fire Station seen when John Hallam was temporary station officer there. Simmons was in the watch room when other members of the watch, led by Scouser, tied a black firefighter named Desmond Maddox to a ladder, hoisted him over a dam and almost drowned him. Simmons claimed not to have seen any of the incident, but his testimony was unconvincing. Those involved were all dismissed from the Brigade by the Chief Fire Officer. Simmons was expected to receive a severe reprimand and a fine.
