Police guard of honour for officer killed in bombing

By PA Reporter

An off-duty police officer killed in the Manchester bombing was given a guard of honour by colleagues at her funeral.

Family, friends and colleagues of Cheshire Police officer Elaine McIver (43) gathered at Chester Cathedral for the service yesterday.

The detective constable, who worked for North West Regional Crime Unit TITAN, had been standing in the foyer of Manchester Arena with partner Paul Price when terrorist Salman Abedi detonated the device, which killed 22 people.

Ms McIver's coffin was brought to the cathedral in a horse-drawn carriage, flanked by two police horses, and met by a uniformed guard of honour formed by officers who had either joined the force with her or served alongside her. People lined the streets and spontaneously applauded as the coffin was carried into the church.
