The PSNI were like knights in shining armour
On our way to an important hospital appointment recently, and already feeling worried and anxious, my sister and I were distraught when my car came to a standstill on the hard shoulder.
After many fruitless phonecalls to try to sort out breakdown recovery, I was becoming increasingly upset and worried about missing my appointment.
But help appeared in the form of a PSNI highway patrol car.
They were amazing. They took control of the situation for me, sorted out the 'dead' car and even drove my sister and I to the hospital before heading back to supervise the pick-up of the car.
In my view, they went far beyond what they were required to do.
So often the PSNI are given negative publicity, but my sister and I will never forget their kindness that day and their understanding of the situation.
