A Police Community Support Officer (PSCO) based in Shropshire has been charged with two counts of child rape, three counts of taking an indecent photograph of a minor and one count of bestiality.

Derren Jon Tomlinson, 43, who appeared at Telford Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, was remanded in custody to appear before Shrewsbury Crown Court on December 7.

He had been suspended by West Mercia Police.

According to the Shropshire Star, a 40-year-old woman from Shrewsbury has also been arrested on suspicion of abetting the rape offences. She has been released on police bail until December 22.

The charges come days after former South Wales Police officer Jeffrey Davies appeared in court charged with two counts of rape.
