Speakers at the service will represent family, friends and police colleagues, including a tribute by Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick.
Due to Covid restrictions the Met is unable to provide a force “service” funeral, however a full “service” memorial will be planned for when Covid restrictions have been lifted.

The event broadcast will go live at approximately 11:25am.
Following the service there will be a private cremation service.
Met officers and staff watching the service have specific instructions on how to access the event broadcast. Guidance has been published on the Met’s Intranet.
