POLICE bosses have been spoken to an officer and a member of staff about 'inappropriate behaviour' on police premises.

Police confirmed the two who were not on duty at the time had been formally advised regarding their conduct.

The action followed a complaint that the man and woman had been allegedly engaged in an intimate act seen by members of the public on February 29 at Aldeburgh police station in Leiston Road.

It is understood a number of people drinking in Aldeburgh's Railway Public House spotted the pair in an intimate act through a window of the police station.

A member of the public has since contacted Suffolk Constabulary to express concern about the behaviour of the members of staff involved.

Police have not received a formal complaint but the matter was subjected to an investigation.
