The funeral of DC Elaine McIver has taken place at Chester Cathedral today (Friday, 14 July).

Elaine was among the 22 people who died in the terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena on 22 May.

She joined the Force as a Special Constable more than 20 years ago and became a Police Constable in September 1998. She worked in Ellesmere Port, in Warrington and in the Economic Crime Unit at Force Headquarters, before moving to the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit known as TITAN in 2013.

Friends who knew her well described her as "big hearted, bubbly and positive".
