A lack of safety signs has been cited in a legal claim submitted by a police officer against the owner of a petrol station.

The Daily Mail reported that Police Constable Kelly Jones has filed a personal injury claim against Steve Jones, who called police after an alarm was triggered suggesting there was a break-in at the property.

According to a letter received by Mr Jones, seven months after the incident, PC Jones tripped on a section of 6" high kerbing when she went to examine a fence.

The police officer allegedly suffered injuries to her left leg and right wrist and attended a local hospital afterwards.

Lawyers operating on PC Jones' behalf have highlighted the lack of safety signs as contributing to Mr Jones' culpability.

Safety signs have recently been erected at Rowell Pits near Ely, to warn members of the public about dangerous footpaths.
