A former police officer who left the force following alleged bullying claims has become an Instagram star, racking up nearly 100,000 followers.

The former sergeant with Lincolnshire Police quit the force in 2018 following alleged 'bullying, harassment, and victimisation'.

She was accused of travelling around the world when on sick leave.

At the time, she denied allegations made by her former colleagues who claim she shared pictures from exotic locations while off work with a stress-related illness.

In the time since, Leanne has built an impressive following on social media, with 92.3k followers on Instagram.

The former sergeant, 36, posts racy photos of herself in bikinis in exotic locations, as well as showing off her impressively toned body and sharing her workout routines.

After leaving the police following allegations made about her posting similar kinds of photos, it seems only fitting that she has gone on to grow such a large following on Instagram by posting photos of herself living life to the fullest.

In 2020, Leanne spoke about leaving the force in an Instagram post.

She wrote: "Since when did it become acceptable to judge someone based on the way they look?

"No-one deserves to be treated differently or less favourable, regardless of their occupation or title within that job.

"I like the same things as everyone else, travel (during my own leave not whilst off sick as previous trolling alleged), working out and looking after my body and streaming games and my workouts on Twitch. Is there anything wrong with that?"

In another post, Leanne said she had left the force due to the "negativity".

She wrote: "Bullying, harassment and victimisation is not okay. Not on any level.

"After 14-years service as a Police Constable, Police Sergeant and Police Inspector I am immensely proud of myself. I achieved that through hard work, determination, sacrifices and a love for serving the public.

"Sadly I’ve had to close the door to the negativity I’ve endured from my colleagues for my own sanity and to protect my own mental health.
