A POLICE officer who died weeks after giving birth to her first child has been remembered on the anniversary of her death.

Police constable Becci Dadswell – who lived in Widnes and served with Cheshire Police in the Warrington area – passed away on January 5 2015 at the age of 35.

Six years on, the force paid tribute to the much-loved PC today, Tuesday.

A statement posted on social media said: “Today marks the sixth anniversary of the passing of our colleague Rebecca Dadswell, taken far too early.

“She is survived by her husband Simon and family.”

Runcorn and Widnes World:

PC Dadswell, who was also a ‘caring’ step-mum to her partner’s daughters, was rushed to Warrington Hospital after suffering from acute pains but died hours later.

It was later discovered that she was suffering from a rare form of cancer called choriocarcinoma, which developed quickly following the birth of her daughter Bella four weeks earlier.

Kind-hearted residents donated thousands of pounds to support the family, as well as for Cancer Research UK, in the wake of her death.

Dad Alan said in 2016: “She had everything she had ever dreamed of.

“She always had it in her head that she would get married to Simon, buy a house and then have a baby.

“It was all going wonderfully well until last January.”
