A West Midlands police officer is to appear in court accused of forgery.

PC Stuart Williams has been charged over an allegation that a woman's report of harassment by her ex-partner in 2010 was retracted without her knowledge.

The charge follows an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission, a spokesman said.

The 37-year-old is due at Leamington Spa Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.
