News reports this morning say that David Rathband, the unamrmed officer shot in the face by Raoul Moat has been found dead by colleagues called to his home address for a ‘concern for welfare’.
Most of us can’t begin to imagine the impact of those horrific events on David and his family, and I do not intend to even try and go there.
No words can describe how every police officer in the country, serving or retired, is feeling this morning but all our thoughts and feelings are with his family, friends and colleagues at this awful time.
R.I.P. David Rathband
