Manchester bar ‘sex on balcony' investigated by Great Manchester Police

A bar in Manchester is at the centre of a police investigation after claims emerged that a serving police officer had sex on its balcony.

A female former officer was reportedly seen having sex on a public balcony at the Rain Bar in the city's Great Bridgewater Street, during a private reunion party in late February for serving and retired officers, as reported in the http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/inquiry-claims-serving-woman-gmp-10959668" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">Manchester Evening News.

The incident was allegedly seen by bar staff and up to 60 other attendees of the event. The bar's CCTV cameras are now reportedly being used as part of the investigation.

The Greater Manchester Police (GMP) confirmed today that it had received formal complaints to its whistleblowing hotline and that its Professional Standards Branch was investigating the claims.

A statement from the GMP read: "GMP's Professional Standards Branch has received information regarding an incident at a city centre bar.

"Officers are carrying out an assessment, which includes speaking to bar staff and people present at the event as well as viewing CCTV footage, to establish if anything occurred that would require further investigation. While there is no evidence of this incident occurring at this stage, we would encourage anyone who witnessed anything that could be relevant to call Professional Standards.

"We expect our officers and staff to uphold the highest professional and personal standards, even when off duty, and if this incident is proved to have happened it would be completely unacceptable. That is why we are continuing to make a number of enquiries and will take appropriate action if it becomes necessary."
