Andrew Harper death: One of PC’s killers launches bid to appeal against sentence | UK News



One of the three teenagers jailed for killing PC Andrew Harper has launched a bid to appeal against his 16-year sentence.

Henry Long, 19, admitted the manslaughter of PC Harper, who was dragged to his death behind a car while attempting to prevent the theft of a quad bike in Berkshire last August.

Albert Bowers and Jessie Cole, both 18, were found guilty of manslaughter and have lodged applications with the Court of Appeal seeking permission to challenge their convictions and their 13-year prison sentences.

Long has now applied for permission to appeal his sentence, a Judiciary spokesman has confirmed.

The prison sentences given to all three have already been referred to the Court of Appeal by the Attorney General for judges to decide whether they were too lenient.
