Swedish cop fined for filming sex tape on duty
11:11 CET+01:00
A policeman in eastern Sweden has been hit with a pay deduction after recording a sex tape on the job while dressed in his official uniform.

The exhibitionist recorded his sexual antics in November last year during work hours in the police dressing room in Uppsala, where he is based.

He then sent the saucy video on to a colleague he had never met before, but with whom he had exchanged a series of text messages previously.

The recipient, however, was not impressed by the sexploits, and forwarded the message and its contents to the police disciplinary board.

The board ruled that the man had sexually molested the recipient of the message and "violated their sexual integrity". The board members added that the officer's antics could damage confidence in the police "especially as he was wearing the uniform during the recording".

As a punishment the police disciplinary board docked the officer five days' salary and slapped him with a firm warning not to repeat such behaviour.
