The eyes of the UK were on Preston today as the trail of Dale Cregan reached its conclusion.Advertisement
Tony Worrall snapped these photos of the heavy police presence around the court as Cregan was convicted of four counts of murder including killing PC Fiona Bone and PC Nicola Hughes in Manchester.
PC Bone, 32, had studied audio visual media and film studies at the University of Central Lancashire. She graduated in 2002.
Cregan will face life in prison for his crimes.
The trial has lasted for 19 weeks and cost millions of pounds, plus taken up hours of police time as tight security has ring-fenced the court house.
