Father's tribute to shot PC

The father of murdered Police Constable Fiona Bone spoke publicly for the first time yesterday at the opening of a memorial garden and "a wonderful lasting tribute" to his daughter.

Paul Bone was attending a service to open the garden which is at the front of Hyde Police Station where Constable Bone, 32, and Constable Nicola Hughes, 23, worked. Ms Bone, who was born in England but raised in Scotland, considered herself Scottish

Constable Hughes and Constable Bone died in a gun and grenade attack in Hattersley.

Mr Bone said: "Fiona and Nicola died doing their jobs, and it's fitting we dedicate to them a part of the place where they spent much of their time doing that work."
