I would like to pass on my heartfelt sympathies to the family, friends and colleagues of this officer.
We can only imagine the pain that they must be feeling. I hope that her injured colleagues make a speedy recovery.
This young woman's death in the line of duty serves to re-emphasise the dangers faced by the officers of the Police Service of Northern Ireland on a daily basis, as they put themselves in harm's way to protect the whole community. They deserve our full support.
