A high-ranking police officer has been suspended after reportedly having a dispute with a fellow female officer about who had the most attractive breasts.

Assistant Chief Constable Rebekah Sutcliffe got involved in a row with Superintendent Sarah Jackson at a hotel bar after the Senior Women in Policing Conference earlier this month, the Manchester Evening News reported.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed they suspended a senior officer on May 13 "following allegations of inappropriate behaviour".

The conference, held in the city between May 4 and 6, was an event intended to "focus on the profile and perception of the police service, and the women within it, and the challenges that lie ahead", according to the Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner website.

A tweet posted on Saturday read: "ACC Rebekah Sutcliffe suspended because of drunken bust up (or rather bust out!) with Supt Sarah Jackson at #SWIP16 social event."

In a statement Greater Manchester Police said: "A senior officer has been suspended following allegations of inappropriate behaviour. An investigation is under way and it would be inappropriate to make further comment."

The Manchester Evening News reported that Supt Jackson is not facing any sanctions.
