A police officer killed in the Manchester attack would “want us all to carry on regardless and not be frightened by fear tactics”, say her family.

Elaine McIver worked for Cheshire Police.

The off-duty officer was among 22 people killed in the explosion at Manchester Arena on Monday.

Her family, who said her partner Paul was also injured in the blast, said “she will live in our hearts forever”.

A further 59 people were injured and taken to hospital following the attack.

The family said in a statement: “Elaine was a much-loved daughter, sister, auntie, friend and colleague, the best we could ever have wished for.”
