Private Investigator York give information about investigation services in light of recent The Telegraph report by Andrew Hough dated 10th May 2013: WPc’s cut thumb will cost force £100,000.

Just because Kerry Ann Taylor is a police officer does not mean that she should have to put up with bad working conditions

According to The Telegraph report by Andrew Hough: WPc’s cut thumb will cost force £100,000, a five year compensation battle between Kerry Ann Taylor and Hampshire Police came to an end at the Court of Appeal when Lord Justice Elias and Lord Justice Pattern dismissed the constabulary’s challenge against her. The 34 year old police woman was injured while on duty as she helped to dismantle a Southsea drugs factory. She was allegedly left nauseous by cannabis fumes when she cut her thumb on broken glass whilst uprooting plants in a hot and poorly ventilated flat.

The Telegraph report goes on to say that the officer launched legal action against Andy Marsh her Chief Constable, claiming the constabulary had breached its duty as her employer. Last year she won a £5024.22 payout when it was found that her superiors had allowed her to be exposed to intoxicating fumes and failed to provide her with thick gardening gloves. This was a breach of their duty under the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992.
