    Tributes from colleagues and rugby club mates, for a New Zealand-born police officer shot dead in London


    Matt Ratana was fatally shot inside a police station by a man who was handcuffed.

    The main suspect is in a critical condition in hospital after allegedly turning the gun on himself.

    Hundreds of people have attended a memorial service at his rugby club.

    The boss of London's Met Police has also paid her respects, remembering him as an excellent police officer and proud Kiwi.

    Police have also arrested a man on suspicion of supplying a firearm.
