New bikes for airport police

Police based at Edinburgh Airport have started patrolling on new bikes.

Mounted officers will be able to patrol the airport campus far more effectively and efficiently, creating a highly visible presence across the airport to reassure and assist passengers.

Kevin Brown, managing director of Edinburgh Airport, said: "We're delighted at this new initiative. Getting the officers out of their cars promotes faster response and will make for easier face-to-face interaction. It also helps reduce car emissions."
