New bravery award for terror attack policeman

22.08.09

An off-duty policeman hailed a hero after the Glasgow Airport terror attack is to receive one of Scotland's highest bravery awards. PC Stewart Ferguson, 42, doused blazing Kafeel Ahmed with a fire extinguisher as the terrorist tried to ignite gas cylinders. The Royal Humane Society has confirmed the he had been honoured with their prestigious Bronze Medal.

RHS secretary Dick Wilkinson said: ‘PC Ferguson showed the highest level of heroism. When he arrived at the scene, the vehicle was on fire and the driver, who was also on fire, was attempting to access the rear of the vehicle. He cleared the area of the public and ran to get a fire extinguisher.'

'Despite several explosions in the vehicle, he discharged the extinguisher on the driver and doused the flames. He then assisted in containing the two terrorists. His actions undoubtedly saved untold lives.’

PC Ferguson, of Erskine, Renfrewshire, received the Strathclyde Chief Constable's Very High Commendation last January. He had been at the airport collecting a family member at the time of the incident.
