A police officer has resigned after he was allegedly caught having sex with a solicitor in a police station interview room.

The unnamed officer is alleged to have been found with the female lawyer at Cockett police station in John Street, Swansea, Wales Online reported.

It triggered a misconduct complaint earlier this month and led to the man’s resignation.

A South Wales Police spokeswoman said the force’s professional standards department was ”investigating an allegation of misconduct against a police officer based in the force’s Western [basic command unit]”.

She added: “The officer has submitted their resignation and a misconduct hearing will be held in due course.”

Details of the hearing were not immediately available on the force’s website.
