A group of cyclists, made up mostly of Metropolitan Police officers, have set off on a charity ride in honour of those killed in the line of duty.

Police widows cycle in honour of their husbands killed on duty

Two widows are part of a team cycling from the National Police Memorial on The Mall to the National Arboretum in Lichfield.

Jo Hill and Nikki Dent are raising money to go towards the building of a memorial wall at the Arboretum to honour all officers killed in the line of duty.

Jo's husband, PC Nicholas Hill, died in May 2002 at the age of 27, after a motorcycle accident while reporting for duty.

Nikki's husband, PC Christopher Dent, died in April 2009 at the age of 36, after a car and his motorcycle crashed.

The riders hope to arrive in Lichfield on Sunday.
