She is understood to have been a passenger in a patrol car which skidded off the road and ended up on its side during a high-speed pursuit of a suspicious vehicle near the village of Garboldisham in January 2012.

Norfolk Police said it could not comment on individual cases.

A spokesman for Pattinson Brewer, the law firm representing her, confirmed she had suffered a knee injury in a road traffic collision while on duty and that "liability for that incident was admitted by Norfolk Police Constabulary".
