The West Yorkshire Police officer injured in a shooting incident in Leeds earlier this month is awake and talking.
Her friends and family describe her as being in “a very bad mood about being shot. They add: “She’s a bit warn out and we can’t hear her voice properly due to the swelling but she’s awake and doing really well.”
Ned Liddemore, vice chairman of West Yorkshire Police Federation, said: “Once again I would like to thank all the officers, staff and paramedics involved in this terrible incident for their extreme professionalism in the face of such circumstances.
“I would also like to thank the members of the public and the police family. Your messages of support on social media sites are most welcome, without naming those officers involved.”
“There is no such thing as a routine call when it comes to police officers.
“When the public of West Yorkshire are sound asleep in their beds our officers are still out there doing their job. Yet again the dangers faced by our colleagues, 24 hours a day 365 days a year, has been made abundantly clear.”
