A Suffolk police officer who was on the run on TV show Hunted has won this year's series, bagging herself a share of the £100,000 prize pot.

Sarah Kibble, 35, who serves with Lowestoft Police, completed the 23 days on the run without being caught and made it to the extraction point in Scotland in last night's final episode to be crowned one of the two winners.

Sarah, who has two sons, served in the military police for eight years, which included two tours of Iraq, before she joined Suffolk Police.

Prior to the show starting, the police officer, who was this year's only solo contestant, said being away from her boys was going to be her 'biggest challenge so far'.

After making it to the extraction point in Loch Lomond in the tense final minutes of the episode, Sarah said: "I can't put into words just how amazing it is to reach the end.

"Most important for my boys, for them to be super proud of me and just to prove to them that their mum can still kick ass when she needs to."

Her colleagues have today congratulated her on beating the Hunters in the Channel 4 show.

In a post on social media, Lowestoft Police said: "Spoiler Alert! #Hunted we just want to say a massive congratulations to our very own Pc Sarah Kibble who beat the Hunters last night and made the extraction in time to win!

"Well done Sarah we are really proud of you!"

And Suffolk Police said, in a Tweet: "Congratulations to Lowestoft SNT’s PC Sarah Kibble on winning this year’s @Hunted_HQ

"Sarah took a period of leave to participate in the series – beats lying by the pool!"
