PC Keith Blakelock's son Lee has said that the main point he wanted to get across in a rare television interview for the family was that his father "was a person".
He said: “Keith was a person. Yes he was a uniform and that’s what they attacked and they killed a police officer but he was a family man. I always wanted to join the police, since before my Dad died.
"It was something as a kid I always wanted to do. I’m immensely proud of taking over the mantle of PC Blakelock.”
