18th September, 2012, two PC’s responded to a burglary in progress – a routine job that officers respond to every day up and down the country. However, it wasn’t a routine job – it was a bogus call made by Dale Cregan. Cregan was a drug dealer and wanted for the murders of Mark and David Short, and three other people. PC Nicola Hughes and PC Fiona Bone responded to the call and as they walked up the path towards the front door of the address given, Cregan opened the door and immediately started shooting them. He discharged 32 bullets in 31 seconds and continued to shoot PC Hughes to the head as she lay on the ground. PC Bone managed to draw her taser as he showered more bullets on her. He then threw a M75 hand grenade at the officers before walking to a police station and stating “I’m wanted by the police, I’ve just done two coppers”. The result of this case – Cregan received life with a whole life order (WLO).
