Statement from the BTPA Chair

On behalf of the Authority I would like to say how terribly sad we all were to hear of the death of Detective Constable John Coker on Friday 17 April. It is clear that he was a much valued colleague and will be missed by many of us at BTP.

Our thoughts are with his family at this extremely difficult time and with those who knew and worked with John during his time at BTP. We would also like to offer our sincere thanks to all BTP staff and officers who are working so hard during this exceptional period to keep the railway operational and its passengers and staff safe.
