PC Keith Blakelock
A very quick post - perhaps there is more good news after the Guilty finding of our mate Ali.
Police have now arrested a suspect for the Vicious murder of PC Keith Blakelock in 1985.
The story of his death is well known, but as a small reminder of the horror involved in the attack, he lost his fingers trying to defend himself from the repeated slashing from multiple weapons.
A photo of PC Blakelock's Public Order suit - each white tape represents a seperate stab or slash wound on his body.
The back of PC Blakelock's suit - after he had turned over to try to protect himself, he was attacked repeatedly from the back as he lay on the ground.
Good luck to the team investigating it.
