Funeral for PC from Tring who died on A41

Family, friends a colleagues will say goodbye to a much-loved police officer from Tring today.

PC Kevin Flint died in a crash on the A41 last month, on his way home from work in Chesham.

The dad-of-two's funeral is happening at Amersham crematorium this afternoon.

His partner Lynn McGill said:

"His passion was to be with the local community where he could work face to face talking to the public and making a positive difference in people's lives."

Kevin's brother Derek added:

"He was an old school copper. He was a real people person.

"He got ultimate respect from his colleagues and the community and obviously made a lot of friends along the way."

Derek, who is an Ambulance Officer with South Central Ambulance Service and Special Inspector with Thames Valley Police, continued:

"Sometimes I would work alongside Kevin in both my roles and I did that with great pride. It was a real honour to stand shoulder to shoulder with him."

Paula Caudrey, Kevin's estranged wife, said:

"Although we were separated for some time we had known one another since childhood having met through the Vale of Aylesbury Model Engineers Society in Quainton.

"Kevin volunteered his time for many years in helping create the narrow gauge railway and it will be a fitting tribute that this will be his final resting place."

Kevin's engineering background meant he could turn his hand to many things including fixing cars and motorbikes.

Derek added:

"He was always helping people with jobs.

"He was Mr Active, he couldn't sit still."

Kevin's first passion was motorbikes, which began when he and Derek were given a Honda C90 as teenagers. He went on to buy his own Honda 125 Super Dream when he was around 17 years old.

From that time Kevin always owned at least one motorbike, often fixing them up himself, and even rode his Honda Gold Wing to Switzerland.

In his spare time, Kevin also enjoyed taking his Aveling and Porter Steam Roller to rallies across the country. He was also a founding member of the Bucks British and Classic Motorcycle Club and had an interest in classic cars.

Kevin rebuilt his Jaguar XJ6 and also loved driving his Alfa Romeo 164 which he planned to drive with Lynn to Italy to visit the Alfa Romeo museum.

Kevin and Lynn had been looking forward to his retirement from policing in three years' time and they were planning to relocate to Wales.
