PC Robert Williams, 26, based at Luton Police Station, will appear at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on 14 June charged with two counts of rape and two counts of sexual activity with a child, on the recommendation of the Crown Prosecution Service.

The alleged offences took place in 2007-2008, prior to PC Williams joining the police.

The charges, resulting from a complaint made to police in August 2016, relate to a child aged between 13 and 15 at the time that the alleged offences took place.

PC Williams joined Bedfordshire Police in September 2014 and is currently suspended from duty.
