To mark the 225th anniversary of the birth of Sir Robert Peel, a service was today held at Tamworth Parish Church.
Hundreds of people – many current officers – filled pews in the church to show their respects to the man behind the modern day police force.
Sir Peel, who lived from 1788 to 1850 was MP for Tamworth from 1830 until his death.
The memorial service was held today at 2:30pm, and was conducted by the Bishop of Lichfield, the Right Revd. Jonathan Gledhill.
