The tragedy that unfolded in Clacton is sadly an all too common characteristic of our lives these days. What is not, however, is the courage and bravery of PC Ian Dibell, who exemplifies the type of police officer that we should all look up to and respect.
I hope and expect PC Dibell to be awarded a posthumous George Cross. His selfless courage shows unique, legendary bravery of a kind that is rarely witnessed nowadays.
I have applied for a government e-petition to be created with the aim of ensuring that he is honoured with this award. Our society owes a huge debt to people like PC Dibell.
