Greater Manchester's Chief Constable has defended the decision to bail 29 year old Dale Cregan earlier this year after he was arrested in connection with the murder of Mark Short. Cregan was detained yesterday after walking into Hyde police station following the death of two police officers.
It is absolutely normal in the course of complex crime enquiries that when people are arrested there are occasions where there is insufficient evidence available for them to be charged. “In those circumstances suspects have to be released on bail as there are strict time limits covering how long suspects can be held in custody without charge. That is exactly what happened in this case.
Officers from Greater Manchester were joined by colleagues from other UK forces. Hear what they had to say at PC Nicola Hughes's funeral.
Thousands of police officers from across the UK joined members of the public for the funeral of PC Nicola Hughes in Manchester.
PC Nicola Hughes who was shot dead with her colleague Fiona Bone in Hattersley will be laid to rest today.
