A police officer entered into sexual relationships with two women he met while on duty, a court in Wales has heard.  

Paul Chadwick, 51, of Churchwood, Pontypool, appeared at Newport Magistrates Court yesterday charged with two counts of misconduct in public office amounting to an abuse of public trust.   

The court heard how Mr Chadwick allegedly had affairs with both women after meeting them separately while working with Gwent Police.  

The sexual encounters are alleged to have taken place between January 14 and April 14 last year. 

The officer then had a second sexual relationship with another woman in May, the court was told.

Mr Chadwick has since resigned from the Gwent force.

Chadwick offered no plea and was given unconditional bail and ordered to appear at Newport Crown Court on October 13.
