A fund-raising event in memory of a murdered policewoman has been held in Barnsley.

PC Nicola Hughes was killed with her colleague PC Fiona Bone when they were called to a burglary in Manchester in 2012. Since then PC Hughes's family, who are from Huddersfield, have challenged police forces across the country to raise money for charity.
