A hero police officer made false child abuse claims against his neighbours during a three-year terror campaign.
Lying detective Jim Kerr turned on Martin McDonald and Ruth Nicholson when they refused to back him in a dispute with another neighbour.
The 46-year-old forced the married couple to leave their home and move 50 miles away to escape his threats, report the Daily Record .

Downing Street has been quietly deleting all its emails using a ‘Mission IMpossible’-style system that erases all communication more than three months old.
The system means it is very hard for members of the public to find out info using Freedom of Information requests.

The system was instituted in 2004 – shortly before the Freedom of Information Act came into force in 2005.
