PC Andrew Harper’s teenage killers jailed for total of 42 years

The three teenagers who killed PC Andrew Harper have been jailed for a total of 42 years, as the officer’s widow said she was in “a lost and endless world”.

PC Harper suffered catastrophic injuries after he was dragged for more than a mile behind their getaway car after getting caught up in a tow rope.

The judge told the three men they were guilty of as serious a case of manslaughter as it was possible.
