The Prime Minister Theresa May will attend a ceremony for the unveiling of a memorial to a police officer who was killed on duty.

PC Dave Phillips was killed when he was hit by a truck in October 2015.

The unveiling of the Police Memorial Trust’s national tribute to the Merseyside Police officer will take place in Hamilton Square Gardens, Birkenhead.

It will be the first time a Merseyside Police officer has been honoured in this way.

I am extremely proud to be in Merseyside to lay the Trust's 42nd memorial to this fallen police hero

– Mrs Michael Winner, Chair of the Police Memorial Trust
