An off-duty Essex Police officer has been praised for showing the "highest standards" after helping to save the life of a motorcyclist she found unresponsive in the road.
PC Liz Ferris discovered the rider as she drove along Maldon Road near Tiptree on 30 June.
The officer performed CPR for about 15 minutes until passing paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service were flagged down. They used a defibrillator to get the man breathing again, before he was taken to hospital.
PC Ferris, based at Stanway Roads Policing Unit, has been put forward for a commendation for her actions.
Adam Pipe, head of Essex Police’s Roads Policing, said ambulance staff told them that without her intervention the patient would have been "beyond help".
"Not only did Liz save a stranger’s life, she also demonstrated the professionalism and highest standards of a police officer," he said.
