Police officer faces jail after crashing riot van

A FORMER police officer who crashed a riot van after taking it from a police station was told today he could go to prison.

Geoff Jackson, 29, crashed the vehicle into a central reservation after taking it from Paddington Green police station in London – said to be one of the most secure in Britain.

Jackson, of London Road, High Wycombe, then fell asleep in the back of the van. He had consumed “a considerable amount” of alcohol at a party the previous night.

He admitted taking a vehicle without consent, careless driving and driving without insurance when he appeared before City of Wesminister Magistrates Court today.

Liverpudlian Jackson resigned his position as a Metropolitan Police officer working with the Territorial Support Group at Paddington Green following the incident.
