The family of William Harrop and Dr Sally Bradley, who died in the Sri Lanka terrorist bombings, have paid tribute to them. A statement issued by the Met Police on behalf of Gavin and Miles Harrop said:

Our beloved father Bill Harrop was a devoted father, the best anyone could wish for. He loved travel, especially sampling local dishes, rugby and fishing. His happiest times were spent with his family, sharing good times as we explored the world.

Bill was born in Manchester and educated at Sale Grammar School before joining Greater Manchester Fire Service, where he rose to the rank of borough commander.

He was proud to have led one of the teams who responded to the 1996 Manchester bomb. Throughout his time in the fire service Bill continued his education, achieving several university degrees.
