MET loss

PC Andy Duncan, who was hit by a car in the early hours of Friday 20th as he tried to stop a car in the Sutton area has died of his injuries . The car made off and was found abandoned later . Two arrests have been made so far in relation to this.

At the time of the incident Baroness Jones, Green Party member of the London Assembly, was quoted as having said '68 people were killed or injured every week in hit-and-run incidents'

Thanks for the stats Jenny

Ms Jones was at one time London Assembly Road Safety Ambassador. She advocated issues such as  20 mph zones and increased traffic policing.

Well Ms Jones, Pc Duncan has died trying to keep Londons roads safe.

Boris's quote sounds like a straight cut and paste wordbite from the last time an officer fell in the line of duty

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe has said: "On behalf of the Metropolitan Police family, I would like to offer my sincere condolences to his wife and children, parents, family and friends.

"Andy was a hard working and courageous policeman. He served the community as both a police officer and as a scouting volunteer.

"The night he was injured, he was doing a job that he loved and we all had every right to expect he would return safely to his home and family - tragically that was not the case."
