A police officer has been left seriously injured after being struck by a car in Glasgow.
Constable Phil Hedge-Holmes was responding to reports of a broken down vehicle on London Road at around 10.50am on Friday.
The 45-year-old was then hit by a silver Vauxhall Corsa and sustained serious leg injuries during the collision.
He was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he remains in a serious condition.
Tributes have been paid to PC Hedge-Holmes, who has been with the force for almost five years.
Superintendent Sandy Blair, Greater Glasgow Division, said: “My thoughts are very much with Phil, his wife Kelly and his family. What they are going through today is unimaginable.
“This illustrates, in the most tragic of ways, the dangers our officers face on a daily basis.
“Phil and his family are being cared for by specially trained officers and any support required is being made available for them and Phil’s colleagues.
“The Police Scotland officers who dealt with the incident acted with the utmost professionalism and my thoughts are with them too this evening.
“I am also grateful to members of the public who assisted our officers at the scene.”
Chief Constable Iain Livingstone added: “A good man goes to work to serve his community, his fellow citizens, and he and his family now have their lives changed forever.
“My love and thoughts are with Phil and his family. All of the police family and the people of Scotland are with you.”
Roads Policing officers are continuing enquiries and are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision to contact them.
Sergeant Michael McCusker said: “We need anyone who was in the area at the time and who has information which will assist our inquiry to get in touch. Anyone who may have captured the collision on their vehicles’ dashcam is also urged to come forward.”
Enquiries into the circumstances surrounding the collision are ongoing.
Police Scotland have confirmed that a 30-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident.
