Nearly 100 PSNI officers have convictions, including for assault, harassment and firearm offences - accounting for almost half of the overall figure revealed in a probe by Sky News of UK police forces.

However, two-thirds of the forces did not respond to Sky.

The PSNI disclosed 99 serving officers had received criminal convictions while employed by the force, of which five were sergeants and the rest constables.
