The police come in for a lot of criticism these days and sometimes it may be justified.
But little gestures like the officers who came to the aid of the stranded newlyweds in Burnley helps restore faith in our police force.
For those who missed the story, the bridal car taking Emma and Georgia Garnett to their wedding reception was involved in a crash, and the police called to the scene volunteered to take them.
All our emergency services personnel are over-stretched and under-funded and it is increasingly difficult for them to meet the demands made of them. But thoughtful and kind gestures remind us that they are all human and doing their best and we should not forget that.
