On Friday 20th September 2013 Pc Andrew Duncan was on duty in Sutton when he was struck by a car driven by an offender he was attempting to apprehend. He died from his injuries on Sunday 22nd September 2013.
The offender fled the scene, and the car was later found abandoned nearby.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, said: “On behalf of the Metropolitan Police family, I would like to offer my sincere condolences to his wife and children, parents, family and friends.
“Andy was a hard working and courageous policeman. He served the community as both a police officer and as a scouting volunteer.
“The night he was injured, he was doing a job that he loved and we all had every right to expect he would return safely to his home and family – tragically that was not the case.”
The whole of the Police Service is grieving, Andy dedicated himself to serving the public, saving lives, and keeping us all safe. He’s had his life taken from him while doing just this.
Please pray for his wife, children, family, and friends.
