PC Andrew Bramma's family paid tribute to him today, after an inquest recorded a verdict of accidental death. He died following a car crash in Ripon.
“Andrew has always been a source of pride to the family, a loving husband, father and a cherished son and brother.
“While we are still having difficulty coming to terms with our lives without Andrew, the overwhelming support we have received has provided a great deal of comfort to us all.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their kindness and care. It has helped us gain the strength to get us through these past four months.
“We will always cherish Andrew's memory.”
A fund set up by North Yorkshire Police Federation for PC Bramma’s children remains open.
