A serving detective whose anonymous blog carried criticisms of government ministers and police bureaucracy has been disciplined by his force.
The action, by Lancashire Constabulary, follows the exposure of the blogger “Night Jack” by the Times newspaper.
He was unmasked after the High Court rejected his plea that his anonymity be preserved “in the public interest”.
Lancashire Constabulary said the blogger, named as Det Con Richard Horton, had received a written warning.
A spokeswoman said: “The commentary in the blog is indeed the work of a serving Lancashire detective and clearly the views and opinions expressed are those of the author himself and not those of the wider Constabulary.
