Kerb crawl cop's vice girl shame.

A RESPECTED policeman's career was in tatters last night after he was convicted of kerb crawling.

Det Sgt Mark Daniel, 34, was caught in a notorious red light area where five prostitutes were killed.

He told officers the vice girl in his unmarked police car was helping him to find a burger van.

But Donna Drewry, 30, told Ipswich magistrates: "He knew where we were going, what he wanted."

She heard Daniel crying as he was quizzed by officers. He allegedly said: "Please don't arrest me. I have been in the force 14 years, I'll lose my job."

Prosecutor Ian Pells said: "He is a man with an exemplary career and reputation. When people are placed on a pedestal, there is a danger they'll fall off."

Daniel, of Brantham, Suffolk, was fined pounds 700. He has launched an appeal.
