Investigators believe Cpl Roger Heal came into contact with scores of youngsters during his voluntary work with the air cadets, Scouts and football and cricket clubs.

They have urged children who may have been a victim of sexual assault to contact police as soon as possible.

The officer is based at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire but has volunteered with youth groups across the country over more than a decade.

His volunteering is thought to have included helping out at scouts, air cadets and civilian football and cricket clubs across London, the Thames Valley, Cheshire and Northumbria between 2001 and 2014.

Heal was in custody today after being arrested by officers from the RAF Police’s sexual offences and child abuse investigation team.

The officer will appear at a pre-court martial hearing in Colchester tomorrow, accused of possession and distribution of indecent images of children.
