Photographer hit by royal driver seeks compensation

A photographer has launched a car accident compensation claim after being run over by an unmarked police car, believed to be transporting Prince Harry.

The 54-year-old photographer who is also an ex-policeman and former soldier, had been waiting for the prince to appear outside the Beaufort Club in Knightsbridge, London, with other members of the press when he was hit by a Ford Galaxy people carrier. Another plain clothes police officer also had his foot run over as he stood outside the club.

The photographer sustained serious personal injuries in the car crash including a broken leg and a torn Achilles tendon. His injuries were so severe that he was forced to stay in bed for months and has been unable to return to work.

The driver of the vehicle, who was a royal protection officer, failed to stop after the car accident. However, the Crown Prosecution Service stated that the officer involved could not be prosecuted as he was unaware that any car accident had taken place.

The photographer has now launched a claim for car accident compensation against the Metropolitan Police Force for his loss of earnings and the suffering caused by the incident.
