A female Police Community Support Officer repeatedly spanked her colleague on the bottom after developing an 'unhealthy interest' in him, a court heard today (MON).

PCSO Josephine Browne, 50, flashed her bra at the young officer and 'seductively' leaned towards him when they were shut in a lift together, it is said.

Jurors heard a colleague also caught her peering at him while he changed in scenes reminiscent of the Alfred Hitchcock film 'Psycho'.

Browne is accused of spanking her fellow officer's backside six times, leaving marks that were visible an hour later.

MOORE: NURSE FAILED TO TELL OF TEENAGER'S ORDEAL


BARROW

A school nurse waited nearly a week to raise the alarm after learning a suicidal schoolgirl had been sexually assaulted and taken an overdose of painkillers, a tribunal heard.

Donna Moore should have alerted doctors within 48 hours of discovering Helena Farrell, 15, had an eating disorder, suffered from depression and had a history of self-harm, it is said.

The nurse knew Helena had swallowed a handful of paracetamol and had claimed she was sexually assaulted on a recent trip to Germany.

But Moore waited almost six days to refer the case to mental health professionals, it is said.
