Clap for our carers: Blue salute as trains toot their horns

The campaign continues to recognise key workers and all those on the frontline battling to stop the spread of Covid-19.

The nation has once again come together to thank the NHS workers fighting coronavirus.

Now in its sixth week, the clap for our carers campaign continues to recognise key workers and all those on the frontline battling to stop the spread of Covid-19.

At 8pm on Thursday, people across the UK showed their appreciation for health staff by cheering and applauding into the streets.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon tweeted a video of her applauding, and added: β€œThank you so much to everyone working hard every day to care for us and keep our essential services going.”

The team at Invergordon fire station in the Highlands paid a special blue light tribute.

Trains at ScotRail’s Yoker depot in Glasgow sounded their horns in honour of Captain Tom Moore’s 100th birthday.

The Eastfield depot team in South Lanarkshire also tooted their horns in celebration.

Scotland Transerv staff applauded the frontline workers, while in Gourock, Inverclyde, Iain Cameron captured marine towing tug Anglegarth’s water show.

Chief inspector Shaheen Baber, Police Scotland’s area commender for South West Glasgow, praised the staff at the city’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

He said: “And another week of hard work by NHS staff at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

“Continued thanks and appreciations, especially ICU staff on the first floor.”

Meanwhile, Hazel Sim, headteacher at Cleeves Primary School in Glasgow, joined her son in a musical number.
