A Bedfordshire Police officer who was accused of historical child sex offences has been exonerated and cleared of any wrongdoing.

A jury at Peterborough Crown Court found PC Robert Williams, who is 27 and based at Luton Police Station, not guilty of two counts of raping a child and two counts of sexual activity with a child.

The Bedfordshire force has since carried out an internal investigation and now cleared him of any misconduct.
