A claim that a police officer raped a junior colleague in a Belfast police station is being investigated by the Police Service of Northern Ireland, it was learned today.

The female officer is understood to have made the allegation against a superior officer following an incident in recent weeks at a station in the east of the city.

A PSNI spokeswoman confirmed: “The police are investigating an allegation of a serious sexual assault in the Castlereagh area.”

PSNI Chief Constable Hugh Orde is being kept informed about the investigation into the alleged rape, which is understood to have occurred after an evening event at a police station.
