A former police officer has been jailed for two years after admitting having sex with two victims of crime.

Former Nottinghamshire PC Simon Jones, 32, who moved to South Wales after resigning from the force in September, had sex with one victim while on duty.

He was jailed for two counts of misconduct in public office at Nottingham Crown Court.

A police spokesman said Jones had taken advantage of his victims and was "a sexual predator".

'Reckless sex'

Jones was based at Worksop police station in north Nottinghamshire when he committed the offences.

Det Supt Jackie Alexander said: "Jones was a sexual predator - he had a duty to protect vulnerable people and he chose to exploit them sexually.

"What Simon Jones did goes against everything that we, as a police force, stand for.

"Jones should have been there to protect vulnerable people and uphold the law, not take advantage of their situation for his own sexual gratification."

Judge Michael Stokes told Jones: "To use your position as a police officer in order to engage in reckless sex activities with women who are themselves extremely vulnerable is a very serious matter."
