Police officers in Kingston have disclosed the extent of ‘their going beyond the call of duty’ in a posting on their Facebook page.

PC Andrew Stone and PC Jemma Lyons responded to a call out by a distressed woman, who had just found her partner deceased in his flat.

Having dealt with the situation ‘with compassion and sensitivity’, the officers then returned the woman to her own flat.

On arrival they discovered that she had been living with no hot water or electricity for six months and was in £300 of debt to British Gas.

British Gas were contacted by PC Lyons and Stone and they kindly volunteered to clear the £300 debt due to the circumstances.

The following day the officers returned to the flat to check on the bereaved woman.

The team of officers and staff at Kingston MPS raised funds out of their own pockets and presented them to PC Lyons and Stone.

This allowed the duo to purchase to buy food and cleaning products.

They went to her flat, cleaned her kitchen, cooked her dinner and spent some time with her.

The flat is now warm, the electricity is back on and the female is receiving help and continued support.

These gestures are being recognised with postings on social media.
