A police officer was injured when his patrol car crashed and overturned in Jersey.

The 38-year-old officer is in a "comfortable" condition in hospital after the crash on La Grande Route de la Cote, police said.

No other vehicles were involved and there were no passengers in the car.

The officer was not responding to a 999 call and police are investigating the cause of the crash, which happened at about 05:30 BST.

Crash investigators are at the scene and the road, between Ponterson Lane and Samares Lane, could be closed for several hours, Jersey police said.

The force said once the investigation was completed a file would be sent to the attorney general who would make a decision on whether any offences took place.
