Philippa Reynolds: 'beautiful, friendly, bubbly woman'


PSNI constable Philippa Reynolds who was killed in a car crash in Derry involving a stolen vehicle gave up teaching so she could pursue a policing career.

The 27-year-old was described by her commanding officer as a “beautiful, friendly, bubbly woman” and one of the “most enthusiastic officers in the prime of her life”.

Police arrested two local men on Saturday after viewing CCTV images of the scene of the collision in the Waterside area of Derry early on Saturday morning.

The men, aged 23 and 25, were still being questioned last night. PSNI chief constable Matt Baggott in paying tribute to Constable Reynolds said no stone would be left unturned to bring those responsible to justice.
