Police and councillors paid tribute to an officer who tragically died in a motorcycle crash in Amersham in May.

Chiltern District Council leader Isobel Darby offered her condolences to Thames Valley Police chief Francis Habgood, at a full council meeting on Tuesday this week.

PC Caddy, 29, died after his motorcycle was involved in a crash with a black Hyundai estate car on the A413.

He was off-duty at the time of the crash.

Speaking at the council meeting, chief constable Habgood said: “I was at his funeral and there was a fantastic turnout from a lot of his colleagues but it was also really nice to see members of the community there.

“There was a 100 year-old-lady who he had befriended when he was a PCSO many years ago and I think that shows the measure of the individual.

“They were tragic circumstances, really, really sad, because he was somebody who lived and worked in Amersham for almost all of his life and he came in touch with lots of people – so thank you very much.”

Dozens of emotional tributes were left at the scene of the horrific crash.

PC Caddy’s funeral was held last month, with family, friends and colleagues of joining together to celebrate his life at Milton Chapel in the Chilterns Crematorium.

Following the crash, his family paid tribute to him, saying: “He had a unique ability to spread joy and humour to all he came into contact with.

“So dearly loved by family and friends, he will be deeply missed and forever with us in our thoughts.”
