The families of two police officers killed in a gun and grenade attack in Greater Manchester have paid tribute to them.
The policewomen PC Nicola Hughes, aged 23 and PC Fiona Bone, aged 32 were killed as they responded to a routine burglary call on Tuesday morning (18 September).
The parents of PC Fiona Bone who spent her early life in Castle Donington in Leicestershire, say they have "lost a wonderful daughter, sister, partner and parent."
The family of PC Nicola Hughes say "she was always happy with life and lived for her family."
Meanwhile, people living in Castle Donington have spoken of their shock over the news.
PC Fiona Bone leaves behind her Mum, June, Dad, Paul and her sister Vicky and Vicky’s Fiancée Mark, her partner Clare and daughter Jessie.
Her family went on to thank the police for their support:
On Wednesday, Chief Constable, Sir Peter Fahy, said the force had been "overwhelmed" by the huge degree of public support" following the officers' deaths.
Speaking at a press conference, he said he would like to "thank the public for this tremendous show of support".
Detectives have been given more time to question 29-year-old Dale Cregan on suspicion of murder.
A warrant of further detention was obtained on Wednesday night and is due to expire at 9.00am on Friday morning.
A 28-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder yesterday also remains in police custody.
