The male officer was dismissed from the force in October last year for gross misconduct, which police say was sexual in its nature.

Details have only just been released by Sussex Police following a press inquiry.

A spokesperson at the force headquarters said the proceedings were brought as a result of investigations by Sussex Police and the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

The hearing into the officer’s conduct was held in private.
