A special officer from Suffolk attended court for the charge of dangerous driving.

The officer had been perusing a drunk driver when he used his patrol vehicle to block the road causing an accident.

The jury have found him not guilty of dangerous driving but he has been fined £1000 and given a six month driving ban for careless driving. Suffolk police have said that he should not have taken part in such a pursuit and it put many lives at risk including his colleague, the driver being pursued and members of the public.

He now faces an internal disciplinary hearing but will continue working as the injuries he sustained meant he was unable to continue carrying out operational duties.
