Police say goodbye to PC Nicola Hughes

Thousands of police officers bowed their heads in silence for the funeral of one of their young colleagues.

PC Nicola Hughes was described by her Chief Constable as a young woman who "decided not to be a bystander".

Peter Fahy said she was an officer who died from her "devotion to others". She and her colleague Fiona Bone died in a gun and grenade attack two weeks ago.
