A man who was shot during the incident which saw Pc Ian Dibell lose his life has given an interview to the The Sun.
Trevor Marshall has described Pc Dibell as 'a real hero'.
I was being chased by a man with an armed revolver and PC Dibell confronted him and took a bullet for me. I was running away.
But this off-duty police officer was walking straight into the line of fire, into the line of danger.
He is a real hero. He lost his life trying to protect us.
He paid the ultimate sacrifice to save me, just a normal bloke, a lorry driver.
