Penny Lancaster has recalled the “special” moment she shared with the widow of PC Andrew Harper.
The tragic officer died on his last shift before his honeymoon when he was dragged to his death while responding to reports of a quad bike theft.
Lissie Harper is campaigning for Harper’s Law – a mandatory life term for those who kill emergency workers.
Penny, the former model and wife of singer Sir Rod Stewart, spoke with her during a charity hike in the Lake District.
She took part in the Light the Lakes annual fundraising event which has so far raised more than £30,000 for the Care of Police Survivors charity.
The star, who recently joined City of London Police as a special constable, recalled her conversation with Lissie in an interview with Hello! magazine
The 50-year-old said: “Lissie said to me that Andrew would have loved to have done this climb with her, and I said to her: ‘He is, he’s with you now. And when we’re at the top of the mountain, you’ll be closer to him still.’
“We held the flares and hugged and remembered Andrew and all the others. It was really special.”
