Police were hunting 64 year old Peter Reeve. Neighbours in Clacton tell us he is originally from the Duchy.

Now we are told a body has been found in a churchyard near Chelmsford.

Essex Police Chief Constable Jim Barker-McCardle described PC Dibell as a "brave, respected and experienced neighbourhood officer".

He said the officer had "deliberately intervened in what he knew was an extremely deadly situation", adding: "Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of our brave, fallen colleague."

Sir Hugh Orde, President of the Association of Chief Police Officers, said: "The courage he showed in stepping up to do his duty, without thought for his own safety, sums up what it means to be a police officer."

Paul McKeever, chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales, also paid tribute to Pc Dibell, saying: "Police Constable Ian Dibell demonstrated remarkable courage and bravery whilst off-duty and has paid the ultimate price."

Police launched the manhunt after PC Dibell, 41, was shot in Redbridge Road, Clacton, at 3.30pm on Monday.
