POLICE in Norfolk have confirmed that a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) was killed in a crash today.

Norfolk’s Chief Constable has expressed his deep sadness at the death of PCSO Sandra Greenacre.

PCSO Greenacre died in a collision on the A149 at Sandringham on her way in to work at Hunstanton Police Station.

PCSO Greenacre, 51, known as ‘Sandi’, was married with four children.

“A number of families, friends and colleagues are today dealing with the devastating loss of a loved one from a weekend which has seen a shocking level of tragedy on Norfolk’s roads. We extend our sympathy to them all at this time.”
