Two men aged 23 and 25 are to face court today charged in relation to the death of a Northern Ireland policewoman whose car was hit by a stolen vehicle early on Saturday morning.

PSNI constable Philippa Reynolds, who was killed in the crash in Derry involving a stolen vehicle, had given 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”.

PSNI chief constable Matt Baggott, in paying tribute to Constable Reynolds, said no stone would be left unturned to bring those responsible to justice.
