Thousands of people lined the streets of the Canadian town of Abbotsford for the funeral of a former North East police office.

53 year old John Davidson was shot dead while trying to arrest a suspect last week.

The father of three used to serve with the Northumbria force - with former colleagues describing him as 'the best of the best'.

A 65 year old man from Alberta has been charged with first-degree murder.
