It's 10 years since the son of a sub-postmaster was shot dead during an armed robbery at the village post office in Fairfield in Worcestershire.

Craig Hodson-Walker, 29, died from a gunshot wound to the chest while trying to protect his family. His father Ken, 56, was hit in the leg when three men wearing balaclavas burst into their shop armed with a handgun and sledgehammer but survived.
