One of the unarmed police women who were gunned down on Tuesday morning was from Trafford.

A number of shots were fired and a grenade is also reported to have been used.
PC Bone died at the scene and PC Hughes died later in hospital.
A man then fled the scene in a BMW1 Series.
Dale Creegan, who is the suspect in the murders of father and son, Mark and David Short, handed himself in at Hyde Police Station some time after.
He has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of two police officers and has also been arrested on suspicion of two counts of murder in relation to the murders of David Short and Mark
PC Bone, of Stamford Street, had been planning a civil partnership with her partner prior to the fatal incident.
Her colleagues paid the following tribute: “When Fiona first joined the shift, she was quite quiet and reserved. However, she came out of her shell and had a great sense of humour, always
enjoying a good laugh.
“Officers loved being partnered up with Fiona as she was always calm, collected and professional and could defuse situations with her calm gentle way. She was an excellent bobby and cared about her job and the community she served."
Chief Constable Peter Fahy said: "This is a dark day for policing in not only Greater Manchester, but in the UK as a whole, as we have lost two valued members of our team.
“Nicola and Fiona exemplified all that is best in British policing, by putting others first to go into dangerous and unknown situations each day, to help people in the worst moments of their lives.”
