A date has been set for the inquest into the death of PC David Rathband, who was shot and blinded by gunman Raoul Moat in July 2010.
It will be held almost two years after he was found dead at his home in Blyth. South Northumberland Coroner's Office said an inquest will take place on January 6 next year.
A memorial service for PC David Rathband is set to take place this weekend.
The police officer, who was shot and blinded by gunman Raoul Moat, was found dead at his home in Blyth, Northumberland last week. He will be mourned at St Nicholas Cathedral in Newcastle.
The ceremony has been organised by the officer’s twin bother, Darren. His family have been invited, along with a host of politicians and senior dignitaries.
Darren Rathband said:
The service will take place at midday on Saturday.
