THE mother of PC Andrew Harper has visited the police station where he was based.

A colleague of the officer, who died near the A4 Bath Road in Berkshire while responding to reports of a burglary last week, tweeted that the 28-year-old's mother, Debbie, had been at Abingdon Police Station.

The acting inspector hailed PC Harper's mother as 'truly inspirational' after the visit, which is believed to have taken place this morning.

He tweeted: "I’ve just had the honour to meet a truly wonderful woman. @ThamesVP #PCAndrewHarper Mum, at Abingdon Police station you came to see the many flowers and cards here.

"You’re truly inspirational @debzzh and you carry yourself with dignity. Don’t worry Justice will be done."

The family has set up a website dedicated to memories of the officer, which includes photos and individual tributes.

On the website, his mother writes: "We are devastated and bereft but as Andrew always lived with dignity, honour and calmness, we intend to grieve in this way. 

"A big part of me has gone with you, I cannot imagine our lives going forward but we will do so with Andrew in our hearts."

A minutes silence was held at 11am on Friday for the officer, while fundraising pages set up in his memory have raised tens of thousands of pounds.

Jed Foster, 20, has been charged with the murder of the officer and will next appear in court in November for a case management hearing.
