POLICE officers based in Levenmouth are being commended after their swift response to an unconscious man saved his life.

At Wednesday’s meeting of the Levenmouth area committee, Community Inspector Graeme Kinmond told councillors about a recent incident on where officers found a man lying on Wellesley Road.

They quickly phoned for an ambulance, however, the man soon stopped breathing, meaning the officers had to deliver CPR for five minutes until the crew arrived and took over.

The man has since made a full recovery, with Inspector Kinmond saying that, had the officers not delivered the treatment, then there is “little doubt” that he’d have died.

Councillor David Alexander said: “This shows the vital role that police officers play in Levenmouth.”

The officers concerned have now been nominated for an award by the Royal Humane Society.
