A female Police Community Support Officer repeatedly spanked her colleague on the bottom after developing an 'unhealthy interest' in him, a court heard today (MON).

PCSO Josephine Browne, 50, flashed her bra at the young officer and 'seductively' leaned towards him when they were shut in a lift together, it is said.

Jurors heard a colleague also caught her peering at him while he changed in scenes reminiscent of the Alfred Hitchcock film 'Psycho'.

Browne is accused of spanking her fellow officer's backside six times, leaving marks that were visible an hour later.

The cousin of Strictly Come Dancing star Leila Rouass drowned in the Thames moments after he was attacked by a gang of Asian men, the Old Bailey heard today (Mon).

The gang knocked out his girlfriend, Seema Uddin, before attacking Moroccan-born Mr Gharib, who was just a month short of his 21st birthday, the court heard.

Ms Uddin came round to see her boyfriend floating face down in the water, as two members of the public valiantly tried to save him.
