A Cambridgeshire police officer faces a misconduct hearing today after he was accused of taking a marked car to go and eat a kebab while on duty.

PC Richard Musgrave's absence prompted an emergency response from colleagues who were concerned for his welfare.

He has been accused of breaching professional standards.

A document released by the force ahead of today's misconduct hearing alleges PC Musgrave's colleagues noticed he was missing from March police station while on duty in the early hours of July 31 2016.

"Numerous attempts were made to contact Pc Musgrave by radio and mobile phone without success.

"PC Musgrave had taken a marked police vehicle to collect [a woman] and her friends and take them to a friend's home address.

"PC Musgrave then drove to an industrial estate in the Hundred Road area and ate a kebab."
