A Norfolk police officer is facing disciplinary action accused of lying when she claimed a deer caused her to crash on the A11.

PC Holly Moore will appear before a misconduct hearing later this month to answer claims that she breached the expected standards of professional behaviour.

She faces a three-day hearing from February 22 to answer allegations that she dishonestly told her colleagues that she swerved to avoid a deer while driving a marked police vehicle from Watton to Attleborough on July 29 last year.

On route, she turned left onto the A11 slip road and it is alleged that she was travelling too fast, causing her to crash. The incident resulted in substantial damage to the car.

The panel will determine whether her behaviour amounted to discreditable conduct and breached standards for honesty and integrity.

If proved the possible outcomes are a written warning, final written warning or dismissal from the force.

It comes amid a spate of similar cases after Norfolk's chief constable pledged to crack down on officer misconduct.

Later this month another hearing will take place over a hit-and-run crash case involving a Norfolk officer.

PC Karl Warren, at the time an armed officer, failed to stop after driving into the back of a woman’s car at almost 50mph on the A146 in March 2022 - an incident which has been dubbed 'Amnesiagate'.

Initially Norfolk Constabulary accepted PC Warren's claim he had suffered amnesia at the time of the incident.

But, after an Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) ruling, the force backtracked, and he now faces a gross misconduct hearing that could see him being sacked. 

Meanwhile, in a separate case a serving officer faces a misconduct hearing over claims he assaulted a woman.

PC Andrew Dye will appear at a disciplinary hearing from February 29.
