PC Andrew Harper’s mum calls manslaughter conviction a ‘miscarriage of justice’ as 163,000 sign petition to overturn it

THE devastated mum of PC Andrew Harper has branded verdicts of manslaughter for his killers a “miscarriage of justice”.

Debbie Adlam said she was “disgusted” after the trio were convicted of taking her son’s life but cleared of his murder.

She joined 163,000 others who signed a petition calling on the authorities to “overturn a miscarriage of justice”.

PC Harper, 28, was dragged for more than a mile behind the travellers’ car after getting entangled in a tow rope.

Albert Bowers and Jessie Cole, both 18, and Henry Long, 19, who had stolen a quad bike near Reading, hugged after the verdicts.

Mrs Adlam said she was “utterly and bitterly disgusted with the outcome” of the trial which “let down” her son.

She said: “Andrew went to work to serve us all. And this is how he was repaid.”

Among others signing the petition was Suzanne Webb who wrote: “This is not justice. This is a joke.”

Peter Jones-Ward wrote: “How can deliberately dragging someone behind a vehicle not be murder?”

Andrew’s wife Lissie, who married him less than a month before he died, said after the Old Bailey verdict: “I now have my own life sentence. It will be a lot more painful . . . than anyone facing a meagre number of years in prison will experience.

“Myself and our family will spend the rest of our days missing him, loving him and being utterly proud of the incredible man that he was.”

Bowers, Cole and Long face sentence on Friday.
