"A POLICE officer has been cleared of possessing extreme pornographic images.
GR, aged 26, a police officer who was previously based in Farnworth, was accused of having two animal porn videos on his mobile phone.
A jury of seven women and five men at Minshull Street Crown Court, Manchester, yesterday took just 25 minutes to unanimously find him not guilty of the charges.
