On arrest he was suspended and has since resigned from his role of head of corporate communications.

It said the charges relate to alleged off-duty conduct.

Assistant Chief Constable Lisa Orchard said: “As soon as we were made aware of the allegations, we began a thorough investigation and the staff member was suspended from their role.

“As they have now been charged and criminal proceedings are active it would be inappropriate for me to comment any further in relation to the case at this stage.

“We would, however, ask that people avoid speculation which could in any way prejudice proceedings.”
