A Long Eaton policeman who was tragically killed in the line of duty was remembered at an annual dog show.

The Ged Walker Memorial Dog Show took place at West Park, in Wilsthorpe Road, Long Eaton, on Sunday.

Dog handler PC Walker was killed in 2003, after he was dragged through the streets of Bulwell attempting to remove the keys from the ignition of a car that was being stolen.

More than 300 people attended the event.

Since the dog show began, it has helped raise thousands of pounds for the charity Care of Police Survivors, which supports families of police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. In 2008 the show also began to support Help for Heroes.

PC Walker suffered serious head injuries and died in hospital two days after the

The event started as a sponsored walk 11 years ago and has grown to become what it is today.
