September 28, 2018
September 28, 2018: In April, BRITAIN’S first female bomb disposal expert became the first woman to lead Cambridge university’s private police force.
Lucy Lewis, 54, was appointed as University Marshal — a post that dates back to 1620 — and leads the institution’s constabulary, which was set up in 1825.
She has the powers of a regular constable within a five miles radius of Great St Mary’s in Cambridge.
The mum-of-two, who was in the Army from 1989 to 1998, said: ‘I am delighted and deeply honoured.’
