She responded with a GIF of Mr Bean dropping a glass, followed shortly by a cat with a shocked expression.

A source said of the McCann post: ‘It’s not the sort of thing one would expect the police to be doing.

‘I think that it is wrong and a bit disturbing.’

The source added: ‘She worked at the police force in inner Bristol before she moved to Thornbury two or three years ago.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said: ‘We have a clear policy on what’s expected of all our officers and staff in relation to responsible professional and personal use of social media.

‘This policy is guided by the shared values which are expressed in the Code of Ethics and the standards which reflect public expectation on how those in policing should behave.

‘Our Professional Standards Department have been made aware of the posts and will be looking into them further.

‘While we’re not able to comment further at this stage, we would like to make clear that we do not condone in any way the sentiments expressed in the posts.’
