Shock: Police officers in Greater Manchester observe a minute's silence in memory of their colleagues, PC Fiona Bone and PC Nicola Hughes, who were killed on Tuesday, in Hattersley, Greater Manchester. The two officers were attacked after being sent to a council estate to investigate what they thought was a routine burglary report. The Vicar of Mottram, the Revd James Halstead, told ITV Newson Wednesday that the murders were "a terrible tragedy" that people were "struggling to come to terms with". The Bishop of Manchester, the Rt Revd Nigel McCulloch, has issued a prayer, which will be used by many churches across Greater Manchester and nationally: http://www.manchester.anglican.org/news/1201/bishop-issues-prayers-for-police-constables
