Oz policewoman in topless mobile snap shocker

Jubs flashed across force's internal email

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The Victoria arm of Oz's boys in blue has been enjoying a topless snap of a female officer apparently distributed by her copper boyf through the internal email system, The Age reports.

The paper believes the photo - featuring Constable Melissa Scannell "in her police uniform with her name badge visible, her shirt undone and her breasts exposed" - was sent as "an intimate get well message" to her squeeze. The bounder then seemingly passed it on to all and sundry, including "top-ranking officers and ethical standards department detectives".

A Victoria Police spokeswoman said: "She has sent an image to her boyfriend and obviously he has done the wrong thing and forwarded it on. The ethical standards department has been notified. They are aware of the incident, which involved the circulation of a photograph, and they are examining it to see if an offence has been committed." ®

Thanks to Dr Thomas Conway for the tip-off. He noted: "This is the kind of gutter-crawling guff we all know and love El Reg for." Well, quite. Always happy to oblige.
