PC Gary Toms joined the police service in January 2002. His life support system was switched off on Friday following an incident in which he was trying to capture robbers who made off in a vehicle in London last week.
He died doing his job, serving the people of London.
If you search Google for “Gary Toms” you will find around 6,090 links. If you Google “Ian Tomlinson” you will find some 718,000 links. (you don’t need to, by the way, I’ve done it for you if you follow the links).
Gary has not yet been added to the National Police Officers’ Roll of Honour, I’m sure he’ll be added to the other five officers who have died on duty so far this year.
