A Bedfordshire Police officer has been jailed after admitting nine charges relating to indecent images.

PC Paul Henry, 42, from Donington, Lincolnshire, appeared at Lincoln Crown Court today (4 January).

He was jailed for eight months and made subject of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order, after admitting eight charges of making an indecent image of a child and a further charge of possession of extreme pornography.

The offences took place between 1 January 2012 and 30 April 2015.

Deputy Chief Constable Mike Colbourne said: "Online abuse is not a victimless crime and we will not tolerate anyone involved in such criminality."

PC Henry remains suspended from duty and misconduct proceedings will continue.
