A policewoman appeared in court today (Thursday) accused of leaking confidential information, assisting a burglar and helping her boyfriend obtain drugs.

Westminster Magistrates' Court heard Keiley Patton, who is based in Brent, allegedly acted as a 'lookout' by listening to her police radio as the thief broke into an Internet café in Wembley.

She is also accused of disclosing data from the police National Computer to at least two men including her boyfriend Soloman Henry, and helping her lover get hold of class C drugs.

Sally Walsh, prosecuting, told the court: "The actual burglar, not Mr Henry, called up Ms Patton and asked her to keep a lookout for him on her police radio whilst he committed the burglary."

The burglar pocketed cash and phone cards worth £4,580 during the break-in at World Airways in Ealing Road, Wembley, on April 6 last year.

Patton, from Highbury, faces three charges of misconduct and one of burglary between January 1 last year and June 3 this year.

Henry, from Upper Holloway, is charged with receiving personal information under the Data Protection Act and aiding and abetting misconduct.

The pair spoke briefly to identify themselves during the short committal hearing.

Judge Timothy Workman granted them unconditional bail to appear at Southwark Crown Court on January 2 next year.
