Stratford Editorial 9th Sep, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A FORMER sergeant with Warwickshire Police has pleaded guilty to six sexual offences against children.

Christopher Cambray appeared at Birmingham Crown Court on Wednesday (September 9) where he faced charges including sexual activity with a child and making indecent images of children.

The 42-year-old was was originally arrested in December 2014 and first appeared in court in April 2015.

During this period Cambray, who lives in Shrewley, was suspended from duty and faced an internal misconduct process.

In July 2015, Cambray was dismissed at a special case hearing chaired by the Chief Constable, Mr Martin Jelley – a decision he has since been trying to appeal.

Speaking after the guilty pleas, the officer who led the case, Detective Inspector Vikki Reay, said: “Throughout the investigation, our key concern has been the welfare, protection and wellbeing of the children involved.

“Ensuring those who commit crimes are brought to justice is our overriding focus, second only to preventing crime from happening in the first place.”

Cambray is expected to be sentenced in late November.
