The partner of a police officer who has today posthumously been awarded the George Medal for gallantry has expressed her pride.
Pc Ian Dibell was shot while trying to intervene in a dispute near his home in Clacton-on-Sea in July last year.
"I am immensely proud that Ian has been awarded The George Medal.
Ian made a decision to keep his community safe and unfortunately paid with his life.
This selfless act has now been recognised at the highest level.
He will be remembered by the country for his heroic act, but to me he was just my Ian."
