Police take part in run to remember fallen colleagues

Scores of police workers from across the North West have taken part in a fancy dress run in Cheshire today to honour two fallen colleagues.

The officers and staff are running the equivalent of nine marathons over 125 days in aid of the PC Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund.

PC Hughes and her colleague PC Fiona Bone were murdered in Hattersley in Greater Manchester in 2012.

Organisers say today's event in Warrington shows how they're determined to make some good come from the tragedy.
