Two quizzed over Derry police death
TWO men are being questioned in connection with a car crash, that killed a “bubbly, beautiful” policewoman in her patrol car.
Pc Philippa Reynolds, 27, from the Greater Belfast area, died when the unmarked car she was travelling in turned into the path of a stolen speeding jeep, which had just run a red light, in Londonderry.
Her commander said he and fellow officers were devastated at the loss of a colleague they all loved.
Two men, aged 23 and 25, were arrested following the incident on the Limavady Road at around 3:40am on Saturday.
Ms Reynolds, a former teacher, had been in the police for two years. Her commander in Derry, Chief Superintendent Stephen Cargin, paid tribute to her.
