A JURY will be taken to the spot where PC Andrew Harper was dragged to his death in Berkshire.

The 28-year-old officer died on August 15 last year after confronting three teenagers as they attempted to steal a quad bike.

After getting out of his patrol car to apprehend one of the suspects, he became tangled in a tow rope attached to their Seat Toledo.

He was pulled along winding country lanes for more than a mile at speeds of 42mph before he became detached in a lane off the A4 near Sulhamstead.

PC Harper had suffered catastrophic injuries and died at the scene.

The Seat driver, Henry Long, 19, and his passengers - Jessie Cole and Albert Bowers, both 18, from near Reading - are accused of murder.

On Wednesday, a jury in their retrial will decamp from the Old Bailey in central London and travel by coach for a first-hand view of key locations around the scene.

The 12 men and women will be accompanied by barristers and the trial judge, as well as members of the press.

Ahead of the visit, Mr Justice Edis said that a prosecutor would point out features of interest at various stops and jurors would have the chance to ask questions.

He told them: "You should try to socially distance at two metres. But you should be a group of 12 together, if you like, moving separately."

The judge told the jury to bring lunch and wear face masks on the coach "because that's what people do on buses these days".

The court heard the group will see the house where the quad bike was stolen in Stanford Dingley then make their way to the "confrontation" scene in Admoor Lane.

From there, jurors will be driven slowly along the journey the Seat took, ending up in Ufton Lane, where PC Harper was found.

Long, Cole and Bowers have admitted conspiring to steal the £10,000 quad bike, but have denied PC Harper's murder.

Long has admitted manslaughter, but denies intending to harm the officer.
