Title says it all. We have had a lot of threads were people seem to be bashing them and this sums up the dangerous job they are doing.

One report says a officer said the suspect was stopped and when a radio check was made the pair learned he was wanted for recall to prison.

Add me to the list.
Hoping them both a speedy recovery

Should be said that one of the officers was a civilian employee of the Police. A Community Support Officer.

in the traffic build-up that resulted from this incident - I was crossing Ealing Common when it happened. Suddenly the road was alive with Police motorcyclists, cars, and ambulances.

It seems such a small thing, Police officers checking to see that people had valid bus tickets,but for two people it suddenly turned very nasty. One of my daughters lives quite close to the scene, and it's left her badly shaken.

I also got tangled up in the aftermath of the Uxbridge Road being closed. It seems everyone was trying to divert via the M4 and Hayes By Pass as the A40 was also blocked by accidents causing chaos all around.

I hear the PC is now stable which is excellent and which makes my my extra 3/4 hour getting home pale into insignificance.

the simplest thing can become deadly.

Says a lot for the criminal justice system that it was a killer on the run that attacked them.
Wish them both a speedy recovery but I read that the Policeman with the slashed throat may not speak again and also may have suffered brain damage.
