PC Paul Faulkner – known to fans of Police Interceptors by his nickname “Mustard” – has been accused of gross misconduct by Cleveland Police.

The dad-of-two is said to have started a sexual relationship with a female cop, referred to as “Officer A”, while he was supposed to be supporting her as a Police Federation rep.

He met the woman while she was under investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

She went on sick leave and it was PC Faulkner’s role to make sure her interests were looked after.

But he allegedly slipped her his phone number and embarked on a fling with his fellow copper, before lying to bosses to cover his tracks.

PC Faulkner – who is married to a serving officer – is also accused of urging her to lie if she was ever asked about their affair.

The policeman now faces a disciplinary hearing after being accused of breaching professional standards.

Cleveland Police claim his behaviour amounts to gross misconduct which, if proved, will likely lead to him being sacked.

The dad was part of the joint Durham and Cleveland Road Policing Unit which was catapulted to national fame by the Channel 5 show between 2015 and 2018.

In one action-packed episode in December 2017, his car was rammed by two robbers on a dual carriageway flyover high above a river.

Luckily a barrier prevented him and his colleague from plunging 66ft into the water below.

In another episode, he took the lead in a dangerous high-speed pursuit before the suspects finally ditched the car and hid in the undergrowth.

PC Faulkner became a firm favourite with fans and relished in the limelight, sharing pictures of himself signing autographs on Twitter.

His Police Interceptors profile describes him as an operational firearms commander, lists his favourite sportsman as Jenson Button and his guilty pleasure as ballroom dancing.

The married cop met Officer A when he was working with the Police Federation and was present when she was served disciplinary papers in September 2019.

She went on sick leave two months later and he became her official Federation representative, after allegedly giving her his number via social media.

AFFAIR ALLEGATIONS

The pair then allegedly began a relationship that became sexual, despite Faulkner insisting there was “nothing going on” to his superior.

Cleveland Police allege that his “role placed him in a position of responsibility” and “he knew or ought to have known that she was vulnerable at the material time.”

PC Faulkner is also accused of lying to bosses about the relationship and urging the female cop to also lie if she was asked about it.

In April 2020 PC Faulkner posed for a local paper with his wife Jane, also a serving cop, and their children as they spoke of the effects of the pandemic on front line staff.

At the time, he said: “It’s such a difficult time for many families, and with us both being key workers we’re having to manage our time differently now and it does have an impact.

“We’ve seen real praise from local people who are genuinely thankful for the work that we do, and it does give us a real boost.

“I’ve offered to volunteer to help other services in my free time as I
think anything extra you can do to help at the moment is a positive
step.”

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 47

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 30

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
