LONDON (AFP) - Three police officers from the elite squad that protects Downing Street who were arrested over allegations they exchanged hardcore pornography on their mobile phones will not face criminal charges, Scotland Yard said on Saturday, Feb 8, 2014.

The three men, who were arrested on Dec 19, were questioned at a police station over images "of an extreme sexual nature" and had their homes searched.

They were from the Diplomatic Protection Group (DPG), which controls access to the British prime minister's Downing Street residence, and to Scotland Yard, the police headquarters in London. It also guards embassies in the capital.

"Three officers have been informed there will be no further action regarding criminal matters but they remain subject to a misconduct investigation," a Scotland Yard spokesman said.
