Officers cover shifts for funeral
AVON and Somerset constabulary sent two police officers to cover shifts so colleagues in the Greater Manchester force could attend a murdered constable's funeral.
Thousands of officers and members of the public lined the streets of central Manchester as the funeral cortege for PC Nicola Hughes, 23, made its way to the city's cathedral for yesterday's service.
They were joined on Deansgate by hundreds of members of the public who heeded a call from Greater Manchester Police for "decent people" to stand with the force and show support for PC Hughes and her colleague Fiona Bone, 32.
They were lured to their deaths by a bogus burglary call to a house in Hattersley on September 18.

Avon and Somerset police spokesman Simon Whitby said: "Avon and Somerset police sent a pair of officers to cover the shifts of Greater Manchester policemen and women who attended the funeral. All 43 police forces in England and Wales sent two each to show their support on what was a very sombre day."
