If the Polis concerned is proved not to have acted correctly, as instructed, he's in bother. Meanwhile, I hope the criminal was arrested as soon as he left A&E.

If you plan to do a bit of travelling / hiring lso consider an annual policy to cover uninsured losses. The rental companies charge a fortune.
