Police trousers have been spotted on Vinted, an online marketplace for buying and selling clothes, sparking a Hertfordshire Constabulary investigation.

A statement on the force’s website alleges Inspector Owen Hurley took payment for the trousers.

According to the statement, the officer’s behaviour may amount to “gross misconduct – breaching the standards of professional behaviour for honesty and integrity, discreditable conduct and duties and responsibilities”.
