Police officer ‘murdered’ while attending burglary in Berkshire as 10 arrested including boy, 13

A POLICE officer has allegedly been murdered trying to stop a burglary last night.

Cops are quizzing a gang including a boy aged 13 over the killing, which has "devastated" PC Andrew Harper's family.


He was allegedly struck by a car and dragged under the vehicle for some distance, before being hit by another car, the BBC reported.

PC Harper worked for the Roads Policing Proactive Unit.

The Thames Valley Police Federation said today: "On very rare and horrendous occasions a colleague makes the ultimate sacrifice. We will ensure that heroism is never forgotten."

PC Harper was killed responding to an incident at 11.30pm last night close to the A4 Bath Road, near Reading and Newbury.

The incident happened at the crossroads of Ufton Lane and Lambdens Hill, near to Sulhamstead.
