Those whose lives have been lost on the roads in Hampshire have been commemorated.
The Thames Valley Police and Hampshire Constabulary Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit have recorded a virtual remembrance service which will be available online for two weeks from Sunday 15 November.
The service, which was recorded at Andover Baptist Church, and led by Force chaplain The Rev Dominic Jones, coincides with the United Nations World Day of Remembrance for road traffic victims, which is recognised across the world.
Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney was also involved in the recording for the service, along with officers from the Roads Policing Unit, and representatives from other emergency services.
The names of those who have sadly lost their lives in collisions will be commemorated during the service.
Superintendent Colin Hudson, Head of the Roads Policing Unit for Thames Valley Police and Hampshire Constabulary said, “Sadly, in 2019, 56 people lost their lives on the roads in Thames Valley and another 43 people in Hampshire.
“During the ongoing pandemic it hasn’t been possible to hold our services as we usually would however it is important that we remember those who have lost their lives, provide support to their family and friends, and recognise the professionalism and courage of the emergency services.”
