The 2013 Police Bravery Awards have been held in London to recognise the achievements of officers across the UK.
Speaking at the event, Prime Minister David Cameron addressed the "elephant" in the room in relation to the ongoing row over the 'Plebgate' scandal.
He said: "Let me deal directly with the elephant. Yes, there's been a lot of discussion this week about one particular case but let us say loudly and proudly that nothing should get in the way of the simple fact that we have in Britain the bravest and the best police force anywhere in the world".
