Tributes for 'top cop' following death

TRIBUTES are being paid to a Lancaster police officer who died at the weekend.

Detective Inspector Glen Oldham, 44, had served with Lancashire Constabulary for over 24 years, all of which he spent based in the north of the county. His last role was heading the CID team at Lancaster.

Sadly, Glen died suddenly while on holiday in Scotland at the weekend. He leaves his wife Audrey, who works at Lancaster police station as a HR advisor. The couple lived near Lancaster.

Superintendent Richard Spedding, Lancaster Police, said: Glen truly was a top officer and he will be sadly missed not only by those he worked with, who were proud to call him a friend as well as a colleague, but also by the local community who he was dedicated in serving.

-His death has had a devastating effect on the Northern policing family and beyond. We will remember him as a committed and well respected officer, who cared deeply about his work. Glen was always optimistic and hard working, his constant focus on assisting victims touched many and ensured that offenders were brought to justice. His loss will be felt by many and our thoughts are particularly with Audrey and his family at this sad time.

A funeral service will be held at The Priory, Lancaster, at 11.30am on Wednesday December 8.
