Excellence award for Constable Kerr.

Byline: DAVID YOUNG

THE mother of murdered policeman Ronan Kerr has received an academic excellence award her son attained as a new recruit.

Nuala Kerr was presented with his certificate in policing, with commendation, by actor and University of Ulster Chancellor James Nesbitt at Belfast's Waterfront Hall. Constable Kerr was only weeks out of training when he was killed in a dissident republican car bomb outside his home in Omagh, Co Tyrone in March.

Handing over the parchment, Nesbitt paid tribute to the courage of the Kerr family in the aftermath of the murder.

He said: "Ronan was a dedicated and conscientious student, respected by staff and students alike.

"We hope very much that this presentation today may bring some small comfort and help people remember Ronan's many achievements in his short life. Our thoughts are with you always."

Mrs Kerr thanked the university for the gesture.
