Clarke, or Big Show, as he was known to family and friends, was 45 years old. He spent 24 years in the force and was last attached to the Worthing Police Station in Christ Church.

In a release today, police said Clarke was the “consummate police officer and a recipient of three commendation awards for outstanding police work. He was dedicated and passionate about the field of law enforcement and spent many years as a criminal investigator in the Northern Division where he played an integral role in the investigation and solving of a number of crimes in that division”.

Clarke was also an avid karaoke enthusiast and “his love for police work was surpassed only by his love for the microphone and singing”. One of his favourite’s song was Andrea Bocelli masterpiece Time to Say Goodbye.
