A police constable filmed himself having sex with a woman at a work Christmas party, then shared the video with colleagues, a misconduct hearing was told.

PC Daryl Watson was at the event at the National Exhibition Centre outside Birmingham when he disappeared into the toilet area with the woman, who was not identified.

The 29-year-old, who had already resigned, did not attend the hearing where he was found to have committed gross misconduct.

Watson, who had been with West Midlands Police for six years, filmed the sexual activity with the woman and then played it to colleagues at the party in December 2022. He also sent the film to another officer, the hearing at force headquarters was told.

West Midlands Police launched an investigation into what happened, but Mr Watson has not faced any criminal charges.

Chief Constable Craig Guildford today said the former officer would have been dismissed if he had not resigned, adding that his conduct had seriously undermined public trust in the police.

Chief Con Guildford said there was ‘no place in policing for those who choose to conduct themselves in such a manner’.

The misconduct hearing was told that the National Exhibition Centre was open to the public at the time.
