A DOG show has been held in memory of a police officer who died after he was critically injured in Bulwell.

Pc Ged Walker, a dog handler for Nottinghamshire police, was killed in January 2003 after being dragged along St Albans Road by a stolen taxi when trying to apprehend a man. He died in hospital two days later.

The Ged Walker Memorial Dog Show, which took place in West Park, Long Eaton, saw owners of all kinds of dog breeds compete for ‘best in class’ rosettes. There were also displays from police dogs.

In attendance was Pc Walker’s wife Tracy, who took home her own rosette in the gun dog category with cocker spaniel Tilly.

The event raised £1,000, which will be spilt between the Care of Police Survivors Foundation and military charity, Help For Heroes, which helps members of the armed forces who have been wounded in conflicts around the globe.
