Remembering DC John Fordham: 39 Years Since His Tragic Passing

Today marks the solemn anniversary of the tragic loss of Detective Constable John Fordham, who was fatally stabbed while on undercover duties 39 years ago. DC Fordham, aged 45 at the time, was attached to the New Scotland Yard and was dedicated to his duty in serving and protecting the community.

The devastating incident occurred on this day, nearly four decades ago, when DC Fordham crossed paths with the notorious criminal Kenneth Noye. Noye’s actions on that fateful day not only cut short the life of a dedicated and brave police officer but also left an indelible scar on the hearts of his colleagues, friends, and family.

DC John Fordham’s unwavering commitment to upholding the law and ensuring the safety of the public was evident in his tireless efforts while working undercover. His sacrifices and dedication to his duty will always be remembered and never forgotten by those who knew him.

On this sombre occasion, we pay our respects to DC John Fordham and offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues. His memory lives on, and his legacy serves as a reminder of the bravery and dedication exhibited by the men and women of the Metropolitan Police Service.

As we reflect on this tragic day, let us honour DC John Fordham’s memory by reaffirming our commitment to the safety and security of our communities, just as he did throughout his distinguished career. May he rest in peace, knowing that his service and sacrifice are forever etched in history.
