Officers killed in attack named
Two unarmed police constables killed attending a "routine incident" have been named by Greater Manchester Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahey as Fiona Bone, 32, and Nicola Hughes, 26.
Sir Peter said fugitive Dale Cregan or someone else made a call alleging a burglary had been committed at an address in Hattersley, Greater Manchester, and when the officers arrived they were attacked with a gun and a grenade.
Sir Peter said Miss Bone was a "calm, gentle woman", an "excellent bobby" and had been in the middle of planning her wedding. Sir Peter also paid tribute to Miss Hughes, describing her as a "chatterbox" and a "great bobby" who was "always smiling".
