We start this week with the very sad news regarding Inspector Toby Day, his wife and young child. The policing family is a tight supportive one and incidents such as these remind us just how fragile some situations can be.

 

We would like to extend our condolences to Inspector Toby Day and his wife’s family, friends and colleagues and offer our thoughts to the two surviving children.
