Moray MP Douglas Ross has paid tribute to men and women working on the frontline as Moray marked Emergency Services Workers day today (Wednesday, September 9).
Commenting, Douglas said: “I’m delighted we all have the opportunity to show our support for the fantastic members of the emergency services here in Moray and across the country. We owe a huge amount to our paramedics and NHS workers here in Moray, as well as to our police officers and staff, fire fighters, ambulance crews and all those who are called to the front line in all sorts of situations.
“Being married to a local police officer I know how much they do for communities across Moray and the pressures their jobs present them with every time they go on duty. That is why I’m glad that Moray Council has decided to mark the event which is taking place across the UK with a flag raising ceremony and a two minute silence which was been officially observed in Moray by the Lord Lieutenant and council convener.”
