A high ranking Inspector with Merseyside Police force's Matrix gun squad has been sacked over allegations that he used his Police issued mobile phone to send and exchange dirty texts with colleagues and download internet porn.

Inspector Mark Brew, was also alleged to have left a conference to meet with a married woman and got a junior constable to drive from Merseyside to London to pick him up rather than him get the train.

Brew is said to have admitted using his work iPhone and Blackberry to trawl the net for porn and to swap ‘sex texts’ with two woman, thought to be colleagues within Merseyside police.

The Inspector was suspended last year amid a shake-up of Matrix after it was revealed damning photos of a search team fooling around in the home of a suspect when they were supposed to be looking for clues.

Six officers – Sgt Charlie Tennant and five constables – were later sacked by the force.
