NEW PROBE: PC Ian Terry

Two Greater Manchester Police officers are to face a hearing into gross misconduct over the death of a Burnley PC who was shot in a training exercise.

PC Ian Terry (32) died after being fatally wounded during police firearms training in June 2008.

An officer who fired the fatal shot and another who organised the training exercise face an internal GMP hearing.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission said a third officer, who has retired, will not face the hearing.

PC Terry, who was playing the role of a criminal escaping in a car, had been carrying an unloaded handgun.
