An Amersham man, injured by a police car which had been chasing him,  has won the right to limited damages.

Michael Henry's foot and ankle were crushed under the wheel of the car, outside his home in Penn Street.

Court of Appeal judges ruled he could recover 40 percent of any damages, but no more as he was partially to blame for the accident.

The man had been seeking 600-thousand pounds in compensation from Thames Valley Police.
