A man is due to be sentenced today for killing a police officer by running him down as he tried to stop his car.
Gary Bromige, also known as Gary Cody, pleaded guilty in December to causing death by dangerous driving, as well as charges of causing death while uninsured, causing death while unlicensed, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failing to report an accident.
Bromige was doing more than 80mph in his black Volkswagen Golf along Reigate Avenue in Sutton, south London, in the early hours of September 20 when traffic police attempted to stop him.
Pc Andy Duncan tried to pull him over, but Bromige hit the father-of-two, throwing him 30 yards and leaving him with fatal injuries.
The officer, who had been with the Metropolitan Police for 23 years, died in hospital two days later.
Bromige was arrested after handing himself in at Wandsworth police station on the day of the crash.
The 25-year-old, from South Norwood in south London, is due to be sentenced at Kingston Crown Court in London.
In the wake of Pc Duncan's death, his wife Claire said: "Andrew was a fantastic husband, father, son and brother. This is supported by the many tributes which we are still receiving from his family and friends.
''We are left with a huge void in our lives, but we have some fantastic memories that we will always treasure.''
