Pc Neil Culham, based in Clacton-on-Sea, was arrested in February following allegations made by two women that they had been touched in an inappropriate sexual manner on separate occasions between August 2012 and January 2013.

He was released on police bail prior to his appearance at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court on September 2.
