A Cumbria Police football tournament has been held in memory of an officer who was swept to his death in floods.

Pc Bill Barker, 44, an officer for 25 years, was directing traffic away from Northside Bridge, Workington, when it collapsed on 20 November last year.

The father-of-four from Egremont fell into the River Derwent, which had been swollen by record rainfall.

The winning team was awarded a memorial shield by his widow Hazel after the tournament on Friday.
