THE family of PC Fiona Bone, the Sale officer killed in a gun and grenade attack in Hattersley last month, have issued a statement of thanks to the public and police.
PC Bone’s mother June, father Paul, sister Vicky, partner Clare and Clare’s daughter Jessie, said in a statement: “We would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone who has supported our family following the death of our beloved Fiona.
“Words cannot properly express how we feel, but please know that we will not forget the overwhelming amount of sympathy we have received.
“We especially wish to thank Greater Manchester Police for its exceptional level of care, sensitivity and professionalism, and the other police forces around the country for their support; you have all done Fiona proud.
“The people of Manchester and the Great British public have shown us more compassion than we could ever properly thank them for.
“Although this has been the darkest time of our lives, your many acts of kindness have been and continue to be a source of great comfort and strength to us.”
