Ewan Skinner, a male transvestite police officer in Edinburgh, was investigated in 2005 over allegations that he made ‘inappropriate’ comments to a female colleague while they were on patrol. She also accused Skinner, 43, of stalking her. Given that similar allegations had previously been made against the officer, he was moved to a job working at the airport during the investigation.

A spokesman for Lothian and Borders Police said: ‘A complaint has been received which is being looked into.’

Described as ‘hefty’, Skinner had apparently posted a picture of himself in the personal ads section of a magazine wearing ‘white knickers, fishnet stockings and a skimpy apron’. It added: ‘Willing to try anything, even AC/DC, your wish is my command.’

Eventually, no further action was taken against Skinner except being posted to another police station in the city.
