The father of Nicola Hughes has said he is "thankful" that her killer Dale Cregan will spend the rest of his life in jail.
He admitted murdering the 23-year-old police officer and her colleague Fiona Bone in a gun attack in Greater Manchester last September - as well as killing father and son David and Mark Short.
Bryn Hughes said that he was grateful that Cregan would "never experience freedom again".
He added: "Our lives will never be the same again following the loss of Nicola and today sees another part of this nightmare draw to a close."
