Last night’s episode of Car Wars showed our officers doing exceptional work in very difficult circumstances and we are very proud of the lengths that they go to protect the public.

One of our officers while driving on a Police access road to Etal Lane station was shown using a mobile phone.

While this was in an area with no public access, we do not allow the use of phones while driving. We have spoken to the officer involved in the programme and given her words of advice.

The officer has made a contribution to Brake road safety charity for the amount of a fixed penalty notice.
