‘She was a passionate cyclist and runner who aspired to be a role model to all diabetics by pushing and challenging her physical limits daily.

‘Kimberley was always positive, full of joy and her smile lit up every room she entered.

Gold Commander for Thames Valley Police, Chief Superintendent Tim Metcalfe, said on Saturday: ‘This is a tragic incident and my colleagues and I are keenly aware of the shock and impact for the woman’s family and friends. We are thinking of them all at this difficult time.

‘Her family are being supported by specially trained officers, and we would ask for their privacy to be respected.

‘Our officers, who were responding to the Waddesdon incident, are understandably distressed that this happened while they were carrying out their duties as police officers, going to the aid of others.

‘It is too early to speculate on the cause of the collision, but we have made a mandatory referral to the IOPC, and they will conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances.

‘Thames Valley Police is fully co-operating with this investigation and will continue to do so, and it would not be appropriate to comment further at this time.’
