An Islington police officer who filmed an underage girl performing a sex act on him before sending a photo to three of his friends has been suspended.

Stephen McMillan, 26, from Aylesbury, met his victim through the dating app Tinder, High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court was told this week.

McMillan admitted possession and distribution of indecent images, intentionally causing or inciting a child to be involved in pornography and possessing an extreme pornographic image.
