Four-year-old Connar Goldie wants to be a firefighter when he’s older.

He has been quite upset and worried lately about coronavirus and especially for everyone who works fin the emergency services.

His local fire brigade in Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire, took it upon themselves to reassure young Connar.

Firefighter Alan wrote him a poem called ‘Everyone is OK’ and read it to him in a video message.

The Cumbernauld crew even gave the four-year-old a drive-by visit in a fire engine with an open invite to visit their station once the lockdown is over from station commander David Moore.

Mum Collette says Connar is “ecstatic” and what’s happened – even if he was a bit shy when he met the fire crew.
