The father of a police officer killed in a gun and grenade ambush in Manchester has said his daughter would have been proud of his MBE for his work supporting young people who have suffered from violent crime.

Bryn Hughes, whose daughter Nicola was killed in 2012 alongside fellow Pc Fiona Bone in the attack in Tameside, founded the Pc Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund to help young people who have lost a close family member through a violent crime.

He is among 673 New Year Honours recipients – 60 per cent of the total – who are recognised primarily for undertaking outstanding work in their communities in a voluntary or charitable capacity.

Mr Hughes, from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, said: “She would be very proud. But I think she’d be laughing. I think she’d buy me some PJs with a medal on it or something as well. She shared my sense of humour so she’d make some fun of it.”
