14th August 2020

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Jeff Cuthbert, has paid tribute to PC Andrew Harper of Thames Valley Police who was killed on 15 August 2019 in the line of duty.

Jeff Cuthbert said: “PC Harper’s death is a powerful reminder of the dangers police officers, and all of our emergency service workers, can face every day as they protect our communities.

“It was just a few months ago here in Gwent that one of our own officers was stabbed in the line of duty and I would like to take this opportunity to again thank our police officers, emergency service workers and, of course, their families, for all they do.

“This is a sad anniversary to have to mark and my thoughts and best wishes are with PC Harper’s family and police colleagues at this difficult time.”
