A FEMALE Met police officer sexually assaulted a younger woman after drinking Prosecco on a night out, a court heard.

PC Rachel Bright, 45, is accused of putting her hand up the woman's skirt after complimenting her on her body.

She appeared at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court today charged with sexual assault.

PC Bright, who is attached to the South West Command Unit, was on a night out in Wandsworth last December when she allegedly touched the woman.

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

PC Bright is also accused of "acting in an overtly affectionate manner" towards the alleged victim.
