West Mercia Police Chief Constable and West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner have both paid tribute to Prince Philip.
West Mercia Police Chief Constable Anthony Bangham said: “It is with great sadness we learn of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip. On behalf of West Mercia Police I offer our deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family. I would also like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the life and service of the Duke of Edinburgh.”
Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said: “The passing of Prince Philip is deeply saddening. He has been the rock at the heart of our monarchy, supporting Her Majesty The Queen in her service for many decades.
“His legacy is of stoic commitment to the monarchy, the many organisations he was a patron for, the thousands of young people he has supported through setting up the Duke of Edinburgh Award and of course the time he served in the British Royal Navy.
“My thoughts and condolences are with Her Majesty and her family during this time.”
