A police officer who was shot dead when he tried to wrestle a weapon from a gunman who had opened fire on a couple in the street has been posthumously given a national bravery award.
Pc Ian Dibell, 41, was voted the most courageous officer in England and Wales at the annual Police Bravery Awards after he lost his life near his home in the seaside town of Clacton, Essex, in July last year.
Peter Reeve, 64, had opened fire on his neighbour Trevor Marshall and his girlfriend and was chasing Mr Marshall in his blue Toyota.
Mr Dibell, a father-of-two, leaned into the car to try to grab the gun and a bullet passed into his hand and then through his chest, causing fatal injuries.
Steve Williams, chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales said: "Pc Ian Dibell was a valiant team player; his bravery on that fateful day typifies his whole life - always putting others before himself."
