The commander of a policewoman killed when her patrol car was struck by a stolen 4x4 said he and fellow officers were devastated at the loss of a colleague they all loved.
Chief Superintendent Stephen Cargin said:
She was enthusiastic, bubbly and had a beautiful personality.
She was just loved by her colleagues and she turned that love to the community she served.
She was a young 27-year-old officer, just two years service, in the prime of her life, doing what she loved to do - and that was serving the community to the best of her ability.
