Succour has come on the way of late PC Andrew Harper as three teenagers who dragged him for more than a mile to his death have been sentenced for manslaughter.

The three teenagers, Henry Long, 19, Jessie Cole and Albert Bowers, both 18-year-old have been sentenced to a total of 42 years.

Henry Long (driver) was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 16 years in jail for manslaughter, and the two passengers received 13 years each.

Metro reports last week that the teenagers were seen grinning outside the court after getting cleared of murder.

Judge Justice Edis said ‘Manslaughter cases range greatly in seriousness. ‘Sometimes death may be caused by an act of gross carelessness, sometimes it is very close to a case of murder in its seriousness. That is so, here.’

The judge added that “I reject the contention that any of you has shown remorse.’ He described the killers as ‘young, unintelligent but professional criminals”

He also said the youngsters have been taken out of school far too long.

“However, I have been made aware that there has been some discussion about the trial and, in particular, the measures which were in place for the protection of the jury.

“It may be believed in some quarters that the jury was subject to some improper pressure. To the best of my knowledge and belief, there is no truth in that at all.”

In reaction, PC Harper’s mother said “However, I have been made aware that there has been some discussion about the trial and, in particular, the measures which were in place for the protection of the jury.

“It may be believed in some quarters that the jury was subject to some improper pressure. To, the best of my knowledge and belief there is no truth in that at all.

“Andrew was such a good man, a brave, a caring person, funny and uplifting. I love and miss him daily with every passing moment. He will be loved forever.”
