A police officer who raped a woman as she slept has been sacked by the force.

North Wales Police said a special misconduct hearing was held on Friday after PC Iain Clarke was jailed for five years.

A court heard on Thursday that Clarke, 48, of Northop, Flintshire, had not shown "an ounce of remorse".

The force said Clarke did not contest that this was a breach of professional conduct and he was dismissed immediately without notice.

Clarke transferred from the Greater Manchester force in 2013 and was part of North Wales Police's major crime team.
