Fiona joined GMP in 2007 and had over five years’ service.

Fiona's family has issued the following statement:

In addition to the kind tribute from the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, may I add that our family have lost a wonderful daughter, sister, partner and parent to Jessie.

Fiona enjoyed life to the full from her days with the Air training corps, Rugby at University, to her service with the Police.

She was planning her marriage to Clare and this joy has been taken from us.

May I take this opportunity to thank officers from both Greater Manchester Police and the Isle of Man Police for their help and assistance at this time.

Our thoughts are with Nicola's family along with Fiona and Nicola's fellow officers at Tameside police station.

A book of condolence is available on the Greater Manchester Police website.

Yesterday Greater Manchester Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy paid tribute to Fiona, 32, saying:

When she first joined the shift she was quite quiet and reserved, however she came out of her shell and had a great sense of humour, always enjoying a good laugh.

She was so happy with her partner and they were in the middle of planning their wedding. Indeed her partner only spoke to her this morning about the wedding invites and fellow officers were giving her advice.

Her fellow officers said they always loved being partnered up with her as she was always calm, collected and professional and could diffusive situations in a calm and gentle way.

She was an excellent bobby and cared about her job, and the community she served.
