Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset Constabulary v Police Medical Appeal Board

Police – Entitlement to injury award. The defendant Police Medical Appeal Board had misdirected itself on the appropriate legal approach to the question of whether a police officer's psychiatric injury had been received in 'execution of his duty' as required by reg 6 of the Police (Injury Benefit) Regulations 2006, SI 2006/932, for the purposes of his entitlement to an injury on duty award pursuant to reg 11. Accordingly, the Administrative Court granted the Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset Constabulary's application for judicial review of the defendant's decision that the police officer's injury had been received in the execution of his duty.
