A Bedfordshire Police officer has today been charged with historical sex offences including two counts of raping a child.

PC Robert Williams, who is 26 and based at Luton Police Station, stands accused of two counts of raping a child and two counts of sexual activity with a child.

The alleged offences are said to have taken place in 2007 and 2008, long before PC Williams joined the force in September 2014.

The charges result from a complaint made to police in August 2016, and relate to a child who was aged between 13 and 15 at the time of the alleged incidents.

PC Williams, who has been suspended from duty, is to appear at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on June 14.
