PC Nicola Hughes' funeral held at Manchester Cathedral

Hundreds of people have attended the funeral of one of the policewomen murdered in a gun and grenade attack in Greater Manchester last month.

The funeral of PC Nicola Hughes, who was killed alongside a colleague, was held at Manchester cathedral.

The 23-year-old Greater Manchester Police (GMP) officer and PC Fiona Bone were shot last month as they investigated a reported burglary.

Thousands of people lined Deansgate in the city centre to watch the cortege pass by, led by six mounted officers.

Police formed a guard of honour outside the cathedral before the service.
