Wreath laid in honour of PC Bramma

This morning, at the National Police Memorial at the Mall in London, chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation John Tully laid a wreath in memory of PC Bramma.

We are extremely grateful to our federation colleagues in London who have ensured that Andrew's untimely death has been properly observed at this most appropriate location.

The National Police Memorial recognises all police officers who have given their lives in the service of the public, and it is right and proper that Andrew's sacrifice should be acknowledged alongside them.

– Mike Stubbs, North Yorkshire Police Federation

Sgt Stubbs thanked police officers and members of the public from around the country who have sent messages of condolence and expressions of support.
