Police Fed chair dies

Police Fed chair dies
The head of the Police Federation, Paul McKeever, has died of a suspected embolism.

Mr McKeever - who was appointed in 2008 - collapsed and died last night after being admitted to hospital a few days before, the Federation said.

Colleagues paid tribute to a man who had "carried the Federation through one of its most challenging times" today.

Steve Williams, the body's chair elect, said that his "leadership and reputation" would be "remembered highly", while Steve White, the Federation's vice chair, said Mr McKeever's death represented a "desperately sad day".

He was also praised by the Shadow Home Secretary, Yvette Cooper, who described him as a "tireless champion of British policing".
