PC Ahmed was on motorcycle patrol when he saw a suspected stolen Vauxhall Nova in the traffic ahead of him. Upon seeing PC Ahmed, the suspect reversed suddenly, forcing the officer to manoeuvre his motorcycle between two cars which were stopped at traffic lights. The suspect then drove at PC Ahmed’s motorcycle, ramming him 82 feet (25 m) forward into the busy road junction where Ahmed was struck by an articulated lorry. He was taken to hospital by ambulance but died as a result of his injuries.
