Met Police Officer Charged With Child Sex Offences

A serving Metropolitan Police officer has recently appeared in court charged with child sex offences.

Member of the Roads and Transport policing unit in London, PC John Wigglesworth, has appeared at Redbridge Magistrates Court. The officer was charged with two counts of rape, as well as two counts of engaging in sexual activity with a child.

It is alleged that the offences took place between 2008 and 2010.

Mr Wigglesworth was arrested at his home on Tuesday 4th August and charged later that same day.
