Memorial garden unveiled in honour of two policewomen killed in a gun and grenade attack.

Pcs Fiona Bone and Nicola Hughes, lost their lives responding to a burglary reported in Hattersley, in Manchester on 18 September.

The memorial garden is at Hyde police station in Manchester and has been created following donations from members of the community, local businesses and police partners.

From the Greater Manchester Police website, Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy said: ‘Nothing can replace the two lives that have been lost. But having this peaceful garden area means that we now have a special place for family, friends, colleagues and members of the public to reflect and remember Nicola and Fiona.’

Dale Cregan, pleaded not guilty to the murders of both PCs and is due to go on trial at Preston Crown Court in February.

Policewoman Fiona Bone studied Audio Visual Media and Film Studies at the UCLan in Preston between 1999 and 2002.  Fiona graduated with a Combined Honours degree and was a talented and highly regarded student.
