Head of Norfolk Police "surprised" by WPC

The Chief Constable of Norfolk Police has told ITV News Anglia his force is surprised that a policewoman is suing a garage owner after tripping over a kerb while responding to a burglar alarm.

Steve Jones called the police last August when his alarms went off at his garage in Thetford.

WPC Kelly Jones from Thetford slipped off a 6 inch kerb. Her lawyers letters claim there wasn't enough lighting at the site or any warning signs. She was unavailable for comment.
