I want to publicly acknowledge the heroic effort that John (Smeaton) and members of the public put in together with police officers to bring these frightening scenes to a quick and safe conclusion.In recognising the bravery of everyone involved it needs special mention and due recognition to John and the other (so far) unnamed people who came to the aid of the police and by doing so resisted the most basic human reaction of running from danger.
To John Smeaton, those other members of the public and to the police officers involved, we thank you on behalf of all 16,000 police officers in this country and I have no doubt that the people of Scotland join me in wanting to shake your hands."
