It's being reported that a police officer wants to drop her legal action against a Norfolk petrol station owner after she tripped on a kerb while attending a suspected break-in.

Steve Jones said he was "dismayed" to have received a letter from lawyers representing PC Kelly Jones after she was called to Nuns' Bridges Filling Station in Thetford in August last year.
