Sirs Roger Moore and Michael Caine attend Michael Winner memorial service
Monday 24 June 2013
A memorial service for the film director Michael Winner was attended today by two giants of British cinema - Sir Roger Moore and Sir Michael Caine.
The movie stars joined the veteran broadcaster Sir Michael Parkinson and Winner's wife Geraldine to pay tribute to the filmmaker-turned-food critic at the National Police Memorial in central London.
Winner, who set up the Police Memorial Trust following the death of Pc Yvonne Fletcher in 1984, was also hailed by Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, while a message from Prime Minister David Cameron was read out.
Around 100 people gathered in the north east corner of St James's Park to witness the unveiling of a plaque in honour of Winner.
