A police officer is to be charged with posting an offensive message on social media, it was revealed yesterday.

A police spokesman said the Department of Public Prosecutions had approved a charge of “sending a grossly offensive message via a public electronic communications service” against Pc Barbi Harris.

The spokesman added: “Pc Harris remains on suspension from active duty.

“No further comment will be made pending the outcome of the anticipated court matter.”
