Lancashire PCSO arrested over 'sexual texts'

A Lancashire police community support officer (PCSO) has been arrested over a complaint he sent sexual texts to a woman he met while attending a dispute.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has begun a criminal investigation into an allegation of misconduct in a public office.

It will examine contact between the PCSO and the woman, and his use of police computer systems.

The PCSO was bailed until February and suspended from duty, the force said.
