A pair of Buxton police officers have raised almost £1,000 for charity by running 500 miles in memory of a policewoman who was killed while on duty in 2012.

Caroline Simcock and John Owen started the Run to Remember in December, running an average of two miles a day, and completed the challenge on Friday.

Together they raised more than £900 for the Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund, named after the 23-year-old PC, of Oldham, who was fatally injured in a gun and grenade attack alongside her colleague Fiona Bone, as they investigated a hoax burglary in Tameside.
