Lockdown threatened to ruin a three-year-old boy’s birthday but Campbeltown’s police officers came to the rescue and made sure it was one to remember.

Kian Green was keen to show officers his very own little police uniform that he received on his birthday last Saturday, April 4, but the restrictions in place because of the coronavirus pandemic meant that was unlikely.

He passed Campbeltown Police Station during his daily walk with his mum Kelsey, dad Simon and little brother Koen but no officers were visible, further dashing Kian’s hopes.

After hearing of Kian’s disappointment, local officers organised a visit to his house to see his uniform from a distance. They arrived in cars with sirens blaring and lights flashing, much to the excitement of little Kian.

Kelsey said: ‘He absolutely loved it – he was totally gobsmacked!’

A video of the moment, in which Kian’s excitement is clear to see, was posted on Facebook and was picked up and shared by STV news where it now has more than 80,000 views.

Kelsey said: ‘Thank you so much to the officers for making Kian’s birthday so special. It really meant a lot through this hard time, and it put a smile on everyone’s faces.’
