Memorial service to be held in Liverpool for legal legend Colonel Graeme “Paddy” Bryson

TRIBUTES will be paid this weekend to one of Merseyside’s leading lawyers who died in September aged 99.

Colonel Graeme “Paddy” Bryson, of Hightown, will be remembered in a special service at Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral at 3pm tomorrow.

A prominent Catholic, Col Bryson’s career saw him serve as a soldier, before working as a lawyer, judge and writer.

In 1960, he became the first judge to be shot at in a UK court and was awarded a Queen’s Order for his bravery, which saw him tackle the gunman to the floor.
