A fund is expected to be set up this week to help the family of a police officer who died on duty. It is being set up by the North Yorkshire Police Federation, which has been inundated with offers of help since PC Andrew Bramma's death.
The father of two was killed in a crash as he responded to an emergency call near Ripon in North Yorkshire. His vehicle hit a tree. The Federation says the Chief Constable has agreed to formally launch the fund.
