A police officer is under investigation after it was alleged that he bought a pair of dirty knickers online then had them delivered to his police station.
Detective Sergeant Mark Burns is alleged to have ordered the size 6, hot-pink underwear from a fetish website for £20.
In order that his wife didn’t find out about the knickers, he’s alleged to have had them delivered to Preston nick and requested a video of her.
‘Polliespanties’ – her username on the website – told the Sunday Mirror that he asked her to send knickers that she had been wearing for two days.

She said: ‘I couldn’t believe it when he sent me a message saying he was a policeman, and it was even worse when he asked to send it to the station. It’s not what the police should be doing, is it?
‘I only did it because I lost my job and wanted to earn a bit of extra money. I took a couple of pictures of my bum in underwear and stuck them on the website.’
A spokesman for Lancashire Constabulary said: ‘This matter has been referred to our Professional Standards Department who are undertaking an investigation. The officer has been placed on alternative duties while this investigation is carried out.’
According to the paper he had requested knickers in the past.
