Alan Armsden (Executor of the Estate of Rachael Cheesewright, Dec'd) v Kent Police




[2009] EWCA Civ 631

2009-06-25

A police force was 40 per cent contributorily negligent in relation to a fatal road traffic accident in which a police car had collided with another car at a junction, as a police officer's failure to use a siren had affected the speed at which it was safe for the police car to travel and had exacerbated the danger that there might be another car about to enter the junction.
