Police chief accused of using taxpayer money to book hotels for sex with colleagues

A Metropolitan police chief superintendent is under investigation after allegedly using taxpayer’s money to book hotels to have sex with female colleagues.

Simon Crick, police lead in Newham, London, has been put on desk duties, a source has told Sky News.

The chief superintendent allegedly slept with three female colleagues and used a corporate card to book hotel rooms to meet up with them.

He was placed under investigation last month, and an acting officer has stepped into his role, Sky News understands.

A source also revealed that Mr Crick had given the green light to expenses payments for some of the women with whom he had slept despite not having the authority to do so.
