PC Anthony Fellows quits for sending nude photo to girl

A police officer who sent a naked photograph of himself to a teenage girl has resigned.

Anthony Fellows, of the West Midlands force, was given a two-year suspended sentence at Birmingham Crown Court.

The 26-year-old, from Sanderling Close in Featherstone, Staffordshire, admitted the improper use of the electronic communications network.

A charge of attempting to force a child between the age of 13 and 15 to look at an obscene image was dropped.

Fellows had been a constable with the force for four years.

He was suspended when the allegations were made in October and November last year.

The force confirmed on Tuesday that Fellows resigned two months ago.

At the hearing earlier this month, the court also ordered him to pay £135 costs.
