      <p class=”mol-para-with-font”>PC Andrew Harper’s widow Lissie today said she was ‘immensely disappointed’ that the three teenagers who killed her husband were cleared of murder, describing the crime as ‘barbaric’, and that she now faces a ‘life sentence’ that is ‘more painful’ and ‘soul destroying’ than a ‘meagre number of years in prison.'</p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Henry Long, Albert Bowers and Jessie Cole, who are all travellers, hugged each other as they were cleared of murdering the police officer by dragging him to his death behind their car – but were convicted of manslaughter.</p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Speaking outside the Old Bailey in London this afternoon, Ms Harper said: ‘The way in which Andrew was robbed of his life we all know to be barbaric and inexplicable.

      The results from this trial I had hoped would bring justice but in reality make no difference to the heart-wrenching pain I will continue to feel for the rest of my life. </p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>’Andrew served in Thames Valley Police with honour. He went out night after night risking his life for the safety and the wellbeing of the innocent as all police officers do with passion. Ultimately he laid down his life for us all and it pains me more than I can ever explain that this has not been appreciated by the very people who should have seen his heroic and selfless duty as so many other members of the public – total strangers – clearly do. </p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>PC Harper, 28, had tried to stop the thieves stealing a quad bike and his ankles were lassoed by the trailing loading strap as the teenagers tried to escape in Sulhamstead, Berkshire, in August last year.</p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>For over a mile he was towed helplessly behind the Seat Toledo by his feet as the car reached speeds of up to 60mph with driver Long, 19, swerving violently to try and release the stricken officer. </p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Ms Harper added today: ‘Myself and Andrew’s family will never come to terms with our new lives, we will never understand how such a beautiful, loving, decent human being could be dealt this fate. </p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>’Myself and our family will spend the rest of our days missing him, loving him and being utterly proud of the incredible man that he was.

      We will never forget the kindness that we as a family have received from all who have supported us over the last year – friends, family and total strangers and the almighty unity of the thin blue line.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.’ </p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Long and his two friends Bowers and Cole, both 18, were all accused of murder but convicted only of manslaughter and were seen joyfully embracing each other via a videolink from HMP Belmarsh in London.</p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Their families cheered as the verdict was announced – but PC Harper’s wife Lissie sobbed in court.

      The three killers had laughed and joked with each other during the trial and when Long was charged he said he ‘didn’t give a f***.'</p><p class=”mol-para-with-font”>Meanwhile it can now be reported that the jury were given special protection by police because detectives believed associates of the defendants were planning to intimidate them.</p><div class=”mol-img-group xwArtSplitter” style=”style”> <div class=”mol-img”> <div class=”image-wrap”> PC Andrew Harper and his wife Lissie celebrating their wedding at Ardington House in Oxfordshire in summer 2019 </div> <noscript> PC Andrew Harper and his wife Lissie celebrating their wedding at Ardington House in Oxfordshire in summer 2019 </noscript> </div> <p class=”imageCaption”> PC Andrew Harper and his wife Lissie celebrating their wedding at Ardington House in Oxfordshire in summer 2019</p></div><div class=”mol-img-group xwArtSplitter” style=”style”> <div class=”mol-img”> <div class=”image-wrap”> Lissie Harper (centre, in white), the widow of PC Harper, outside the Old Bailey in London this afternoon.
