Alan Campbell MP said:
“It was an honour to today attend the unveiling of a headstone in memory of Police Constable Mornington Alfred Clements of Tynemouth Borough Police.
Police Constable Clements was killed alongside War Reserve Constable George Cuthbert Murray when a German wartime bomb landed directly on the police box in which they were stationed on the 10th April 1941.
PC Clements was buried in an unmarked grave. To give this officer the recognition he deserves, the Police Roll of Honour Trust, in partnership with the Northumbria Police Federation have undertaken a project to address this today dedicated a headstone to mark his sacrifice and recognise and celebrate PC Clements’ service.”
