Chief Superintendent Scott Bisset, Bradford District Commander, said: "Many people across the communities of Bradford and beyond were appalled by the events of 11 years ago which led to the death of PC Sharon Beshenivsky.

Sharon continues to be remembered with great fondness and the annual memorial service allows her family, friends and colleagues to come together and pay tribute to her.
