We were quite amazed to get a Police Bravery award on Wednesday. The AP wrote a lovely story about what happened, which was taken up by the Edinburgh Evening News and several other Scottish papers. A snippet of it even made the print edition!
Story, archived version, archived/printable PDF. (The story is correct, but the headline incorrectly says he was on the A720 – he was on the M8 just after Hermiston Gait.)
The awards ceremony was quite an honour – red carpet, police horses, piped into the auditorium along with 58 other recipients, and a certificate and handshake from the Chief Constable of Police Scotland. So many amazing and inspiring stories.
We wish the man involved well.
