A police constable who suggested gay sex was "sinful" has been sacked for misconduct, a force said today.

Norfolk Police said Graham Cogman, 49, had been dismissed following a misconduct hearing held yesterday.

He faced disciplinary action after sending emails to colleagues quoting biblical texts and suggesting homosexual sex was "sinful", police sources said.

He also forwarded details of a group offering to "cure" homosexuality, the sources said.

Deputy Chief Constable Ian Learmonth, of Norfolk Police, said: "This officer's behaviour fell well below what we expect of our people."

A police spokesman said Mr Cogman had been found guilty of misusing police computers and failing to treat a colleague with politeness and tolerance.

He was dismissed for the first charge and required to resign over the second, the spokesman added.
