A FEMALE cop has denied sexually assaulting a woman after putting her hand up her skirt on a night out.
PC Rachel Bright, 45, was accused of touching a woman without her consent while off duty in Wandsworth, South London.
Bright appeared at Kingston Crown Court on today wearing a black blazer and black suit pants with her hair tied up in a bun.
She denied one count of sexual assault.

The court heard how she had been drinking Prosecco and "gradually became more inappropriate towards the complainant".
