A police officer who made indecent images of a child has been dismissed from the Metropolitan Police Service.

Christopher Exley, 33, admitted four counts of making images of a child under 18 last month.

Southwark Crown Court heard he was working as a constable with the Metropolitan Police's Diplomatic Protection Group but had been suspended since his arrest.

He is due to be sentenced later this month.

A Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) spokesman said the misconduct hearing's panel found Exley's actions had brought "serious discredit" to the force.

Commander Allan Gibson, of the Directorate of Professional Standards, said: "PC Exley has let everyone in the Metropolitan Police Service down.

"The MPS are often responsible for the welfare of children and young people.

"It should be noted that he was identified and held to account by officers who I am sure are appalled that a colleague should have been engaged in these crimes."
