Man recalls encounter with gunman Peter Reeve

A retired lorry driver has recalled the moment he came face to face with a gunman who was on the run after shooting dead a policeman in Essex.

Off duty PC Ian Dibell was shot as he tried to intervene in an argument in Clacton. The police launched a hunt for Peter Reeve who had fled the scene.

Ivor Starling described how a man approached him two hours later in the village of Weeley, five miles from the scene of the shooting.
