A service of remembrance is to be held in Derry honouring a PSNI officer killed in a crash with a stolen vehicle.

Constable Philippa Reynolds was killed on February 9 while travelling on a routine patrol in the back of a police car on the Limavady Road.

The service will take place in First Derry Presbyterian Church on Sunday, June 2nd at 3pm.

The service has been organised by Philippa’s family, her section colleagues and the Reverend David Latimer and is open to anyone in the wider community who would like to attend.

Speaking ahead of the service District Commander Chief Superintendent Stephen Martin said: “As police officers we know and value the love and support of our families and friends. The work we do is rewarding but comes with great risk and in difficult times we turn to the people closest to us. We could not do our job without them. Equally, knowing we have the support of the community provides comfort and reassurance to the many officers who serve here in Derry every day.

“This service is an opportunity for us to come together to remember the person Philippa was and the service she provided to the people of this city. I know that Philippa’s family, friends and colleagues will be glad to welcome you and have your support.”
