Her ex partner, 35-year-old Peter Foster who's also a police officer from Surrey has been charged with her murder.

The Reverend Canon Glyn Webster told the packed cathedral about the remark and said: ``That is our confidence. That is our certainty. Thank you, Joshua, you've preached the best sermon.''

Det Con Cooper's family accompanied Joshua and his three-month-old sister Isabelle into the ancient building.
