A police chief has apologised after it was revealed some officers deployed to work on the US president's visit had to sleep in conditions described as “an absolute disgrace”.

Pictures posted on social media showed rows of camp beds in a gymnasium, to be used for officers after 12-hour shifts policing Donald Trump's visit.

Essex Police's Assistant Chief Constable Pippa Mills has said sorry. Alternative accommodation has been found for the officers, she added.

The Police Federation had said prisoners in cells would be sleeping in better conditions than its officers when the images came to light, describing the situation as “not acceptable”.
