The inside story of the Boxing Day murder of PC Ian Broadhurst and the manhunt that followed

On Boxing Day 2003, PCs Ian Broadhurst and Neil Roper were on a routine traffic patrol around Leeds when they came under fire from former US Marine David Bieber as he sat in his stolen BMW. As PC Broadhurst lay outside the car, begging for his life, Bieber shot him in the head, shot PC Roper twice and shot a third officer. With access to footage from inside the police car, Death of a Policeman reveals how police captured the American fugitive after nearly a week on the run.
