Thetford Pc to continue with legal action

A Pc who is taking action against a petrol station after she reportedly tripped on a kerb while answering a 999 call will not be withdrawing her claim, according to the force’s staff body.

Speaking to the Free Press, a spokesman for the Police Federation said Pc Kelly Jones, 33, from Thetford, will be continuing with her claim against Nuns Bridges Service Station.

The claim was filed after Pc Jones claimed the property owner, Steven Jones, was at fault after she injured her leg and wrist when she was called to the station in August last year.

Pc Jones had been urged to withdraw the claim by Chief Constable of Norfolk Police, Phil Gormley, and the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Stephen Bett.

Pc Jones’ father, Danny Harle, of Thetford, had suggested in an interview with the Mirror that she would be withdrawing the claim.
