A policeman was caught having sex outdoors in a wood while on duty with a woman who “loves a man in uniform”.
PC Andrew Legg, 52, secretly met the woman at Porthkerry Country Park in Barry at night – but was forcibly trapped by a tracker in his car.
The traffic policeman sent messages and photos to the woman before heading to meet her while on duty.
He drove to a country park at 11 p.m. in an unmarked police car for sex and then for the second time on a police motorcycle to his home, a disciplinary hearing said.
PC Legg admitted gross misconduct and resigned from the South Wales Police Force – but was subsequently banned from working as an officer in England or Wales.
He texted the woman online before making arrangements to have sex with her that night, a misconduct panel said.
Detective Inspector Michael Owens said: “During the conversation he said he worked in uniform with handcuffs and by that she believed he was a police officer.”
The court heard he parked an unmarked police car outside a Home Bargains store near his home and took it to the park for consensual sex outside the police car.
The misconduct panel heard from the woman – named only as Miss A then texted the cop saying, “I like a man in uniform.”
In one post, she described him as “sexy as hell” to which he replied, “Okey dokey.”

Two weeks after their first meeting, PC Legg arranged to meet her again while still on duty and showed up to her home in uniform.
DI Owens said: “He went to Miss A’s home, went to her room, took off her police uniform and had consensual sex with her.”
She then texted him saying, “You look sexy in your uniform.
“You blew me away when you arrived the way you did.”
Miss A asked the officer, “Do you often come to your meetings in uniform like this?” He replied by saying no.
PC Legg did not attend the hearing, but Police Federation representative Danny Ahearn said he had accepted serious misconduct.
Mr Ahearn said: “He apologizes for the embarrassment he has caused the South Wales Police and his family.
“He has no findings of misconduct against him. He has remorse for his actions and did not want to end his career in this way.”
Police Chief Jeremy Vaughan said PC Legg would have been fired had he not resigned five days before the hearing.
He added: “I am convinced it was intentional, deliberate, targeted and planned and therefore has a higher degree of guilt. The behavior was repeated after the old PC Legg should have realized it was inappropriate.
“Former PC Legg did this while on duty, abusing the trust placed in him by myself and the general public. Instead of keeping our roads safe, he sought to follow a course of action that kept him away. of these functions.
“This is totally unacceptable and the damage is done. I would have no hesitation in commenting on the dismissal if he was still on duty.”
