Courage of crushed cop Claire

- BY KEIR MUDIE United Kingdom · Olly Murs

A FEAR­LESS po­lice of­fi­cer who stopped a dan­ger­ous driver speed­ing towards a char­ity run has been given a Pride of Bri­tain award.

PC Claire Bond tried to snatch the keys from the ve­hi­cle near the Stafford­shire 10k char­ity race. But the driver re­versed the car, crush­ing Claire against a fence and fling­ing her 6ft into the air.

Claire said: “I couldn’t move. My legs had just gone.” The PC, who needed months of physio, was pre­sented with the award by singer Olly Murs at ITV stu­dios.

The driver was jailed for 10 years for GBH and dan­ger­ous driv­ing.
