Norfolk police: Petrol station trip suing case 'not helpful'

A legal case brought against the owner of a Norfolk garage by a police officer who tripped on a kerb while attending a suspected break-in is "not helpful", a chief constable has claimed.

Phil Gormley, of Norfolk Constabulary, said police officers joined the force understanding that risk was part of the job, and that the case - which is supported by the Police Federation - did not typify "the normal behaviour of police officers."

PC Kelly Jones, who has not commented on the legal proceedings, says she injured her leg and wrist at the filling station in Thetford on 25 August 2012.
