I realised I had broken a bone and, of course, I knew the reception I would get at home. It also reinforced in my young mind that religion and I were to be uneasy bedfellows for life. Once home from the hospital, complete with my sling, I had to be left during the day on my own as my mother was now working at the Southern General Hospital. I was duly warned about opening doors to strangers and behaving myself and Rosie Scanlon across the landing was usually on hand if needed.

I hope that it will inspire youngsters to become police officers and others to wonder whether they should perhaps have joined the service.

To this day I remember the fear of hanging there, my body supported by a broken window held in place by a rotten window frame. I had lost my balance, the glass was digging into my neck and the window frame was the only thing supporting my body and stopping me from falling into the back court.
