Memorial to PCs killed by driver
Pcs Bryan Moore and Andrew Munn
Pcs Bryan Moore and Andrew Munn were killed in August 2002
A memorial is to be created for the two East Midlands policemen killed on duty in a fireball on the A42.

The Leicestershire officers, who were killed as they lay a stinger in 2002, are to be remembered by the Police Memorial Trust.

The memorial will be unveiled by trust founder Michael Winner in July.

Leayon Dudley was jailed for 14 years for the manslaughter of Pc Andrew Munn, 37, from Shepshed, and colleague, Bryan Moore, 39, from Long Eaton, Derbyshire.

The trust will place its 30th memorial to policemen killed on duty near the spot where the two Shepshed-based officers died after Dudley drove at them.

Dudley, 41, from Acocks Green, Birmingham, was sentenced at Wolverhampton Crown Court this month after a re-trial was ordered by the Court of Appeal.

He was originally jailed for life in May 2003 when convicted of murdering one officer and unlawfully killing the other following a trial at Stafford Crown Court two years ago.

Dudley was nearly twice over the legal drink-drive limit.

The bereaved families hit out at the lack of a murder charge at the re-trial and the length of Dudley's sentence.
