    A terribly sad situation and my condolences go to the gentleman’s family friends.

    Local residents have mentioned to me that they found the police teams handling of the situation reassuring and so, on behalf of the community, I would like to say thank you to the police for the sensitive and professional way they have handled this difficult incident.
