“When I got there a woman and her daughter pointed me in the direction of the horses. There was also two young girls (who had been passing by) trying to stop them running onto the main road from the open field

“I did not get a chance to properly say thank you to these girls,” said PC Campbell.

“Girls you should be proud of yourself and so should your parents. Thank you for your assistance.”
The police praise has been widely shared on the Our Carnoustie Facebook page, with locals joining in the recognition of the girls’ effort.
