Deputy Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police Jason Hogg said: "Our deepest thoughts at this time are of course with Andrew's friends and family, who are being supported by specially trained family liaison officers".

Cops were photographed searching the inside of a gray BMW near the scene of the robbery Friday morning, according to the paper.

Andy Fiddler, from the Thames Valley Police Federation, added: "This is totally devastating news".

Thursday night's killing happened in the same week that two other police officers were violently attacked in the line of duty. We are courageous, caring and compassionate.

"PC Harper died in the line of duty protecting the public and his incredible bravery and extraordinary sacrifice will not be forgotten".

The opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said the officer's death reflected a growth in violent crime in Britain.
