The pair were sacked following a Public Special Case Hearing on March 7.

Superintendent Mackenzie, Head of Professional Standards, Lancashire Constabulary, said: “I am always very disappointed to discover conduct such as this within Lancashire Constabulary, it undermines the great work the vast majority of our staff and officers do on a day to day basis. There is no place for conduct of this type within the police and we are committed to dealing with such matters whenever and wherever they arise. I apologise on behalf of Lancashire Constabulary for this failure to meet the standards that we and the public quite rightly expect from our police officers.”
