A Cornish police community support officer is jailed for seven years after having a string of affairs with vulnerable women while on duty.

Peter Bunyan from Redruth has been found guilty of eight charges of misconduct.

Taunton Crown Court heard the 40 year old, who was married at the time, used the police database like a "dating agency".

He wound up sleeping with four of them while he was supposed to be on duty.

Bunyan admitted wasting police time but insisted he didn't neglect his duties because he always kept his radio on.

His own laywer called him a "rat" but he argued it was not criminal.

IPCC Commissioner Rachel Cerfontyne said: "This man completely abused the position of trust he was in and is a disgrace to the police service. These were criminal actions and he has rightly been found guilty.

"The IPCC has expressed concern at the number of cases across England and Wales where officers have targeted vulnerable women for sex and I hope that this sends a message that corrupt officers will be found out and severely punished.

"We will be receiving a full report from Devon and Cornwall Constabulary and will detail the investigation findings and any learning in due course."
