Mills' Leg Loss Cop Speaks Out

The policeman who crashed into model HEATHER MILLS causing the loss of her leg has denied he was to blame for the accident - claiming she ran out into the road without looking.

For the first time since the motorcycle accident in August 1993, SIMON OSBORNE, who was then a police officer, has spoken out about the incident - and is particularly frustrated Mills sued the police for negligence.

Osborne tells British newspaper the MAIL ON SUNDAY, "She sued because the police are easy targets. I was a serving police officer so you expect to get hung, drawn and quartered.

"My old colleagues are more bitter about what happened than I am," adds Osborne, who had to retire from the force because of his own injuries suffered in the accident, which Heather was awarded $328,000 (GBP200,000) compensation.

He alleges, "She was running across the road without looking. There were three lanes, I was in the outside lane, and I remember her coming out from behind a bus.

"She looked at the two bikes in front but she didn't look at me. She was splitting up from her boyfriend and just ran across the road to get away from him."
