A force has sacked two police officers after they were convicted of criminal offences.
PC Stephen Tilley from Rayleigh in Essex, was given a 22-month prison sentence, suspended for a year, after being convicted of misconduct in public office last month.
The offence related to him sending an "intimate" image to a woman he met while on duty.
Chief Inspector Ben Hodder, 34, from Thurrock, was given a six-month jail term, suspended for two years, after admitting one count of making indecent images of children last week.
Today Essex Police Chief Constable Stephen Kavanagh ordered that both men be dismissed with immediate effect following disciplinary hearings.
