Police Officer's Death: Driver Due In Court
A man has been charged over the death of a police officer who was hit by a car during a speed enforcement operation in south London.
Gary Bromige, 25, from South Norwood in south London, will appear at court in Battersea today charged with causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
He has also been charged with failing to report an accident and driving without insurance.
Traffic officer PC Andrew Duncan, 47, was taken to hospital following the collision in Reigate Avenue at around 1am, but died on Sunday morning.
Tributes to the father-of-two were issued by Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe.
He said: "I was so sad to hear that PC Andrew Duncan died this morning.
"On behalf of the Metropolitan Police family, I would like to offer my sincere condolences to his wife and children, parents, family and friends.
"Andy was a hard-working and courageous policeman. He served the community as both a police officer and as a Scouting volunteer.
"The night he was injured, he was doing a job that he loved and we all had every right to expect he would return safely to his home and family - tragically that was not the case.
"We will continue to professionally and objectively investigate this incident under the oversight of Her Majesty's Coroner.
"I would urge anyone with information to contact us."
PC Duncan was married with a son and a daughter.
He had joined the force on March 19, 1990, and was originally posted to Battersea.
Six years later he transferred to the South-West Territorial Support Group where he served for almost seven years before moving to Hammersmith and Fulham Borough.
He subsequently joined the South-West Traffic Unit on May 17, 2004.
The Met said two men, aged 19 and aged 20, who were arrested on Sunday evening in connection with the investigation, remain in custody at a south London police station.
A woman who was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of perverting the course of justice has since been bailed.
