Home Affairs Minister Juan Watterson has been paying tribute to friend and former school mate PC Fiona Bone who was killed in Manchester.

Fiona was killed in Hattersley yesterday as she and her colleague PC Nicola Hughes responded to a hoax burglary call, only to come under fire whilst both unarmed.

Nicola also died as a result of her injuries.

Fiona moved to the Isle of Man in 1997 from Derbyshire with her family, enrolling in the sixth form at Castle Rushen High School.

It was during this time that she struck up a friendship with Minister Watterson.

He's described her as having all the attributes that make the ideal police officer and says his feelings of shock and anger will be echoed by all who knew her:
