Colchester District Commander Chief Inspector Rob Huddleston and PC Carly Mond, of the Colchester town centre team, today attended the funeral of Freddie Farrow, with the permission of Freddie’s family.
Many people within the force have been affected by the tragic incident which led to the five-year-old’s death.
Freddie died on August 2, six days after a mirror fell upon him in Fenwick, in Colchester High Street on July 27.
Chief Inspector Huddleston said:
“Today, the thoughts of everyone at Essex Police are with the family and friends of little Freddie Farrow. “So many of us within the organisation have been affected by this tragedy, from those officers who responded to the incident in Colchester High Street on July 27, to those who initially took on the investigation before it was passed to Colchester Borough Council. “Essex Police is a force which values family and everything that goes with that and today we hope Freddie’s mum, dad, brother and sister can find some comfort in the support which the wider Colchester community has shown over the last month.”
