The new memorial is the result of a seven-year fundraising campaign and represents an open door to symbolise the dangerous places police officers sometimes have to enter.

The campaign was kick-started by a £1million government donation with the rest given by private companies, the public, the policing family and other benefactors.

Sir Hugh Orde, chairman of the UK Police Memorial Trust, said fundraising would continue in order to build an inscribed memorial wall.
