Pc Ian Dibell

Essex Police says a spelling mistake on a memorial to one of its officers who was shot and killed is an unfortunate error.

PC Ian Dibell, who was 41, was killed last year as he tried to stop a man firing a gun near his home in Clacton. A memorial stone unveiled at Clacton Police station this week has the word 'born' mispelt. Essex Police says it wil be rectified.
