She took legal advice as to how she could claim back some of her lost earnings as a result of the injury, and at this stage no formal proceedings have taken place.
She has been supported by my own organisation, the Police Federation, who have agreed to fund her on a conditional fee basis should the matter progress.
– Steve Williams, Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales
