A Greater Manchester Police officer has sadly passed away whilst holidaying in Scotland.
PC Shazad Saddique, 38, was visiting the Fairy Pools - a popular tourist attraction leading down from the Cuillin Mountain Range on the Isle of Skye – with his 13-year-old son yesterday (Friday 19 July 2019) when he died suddenly.
Police Scotland has confirmed that there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances.
PC Saddique joined GMP 12 months ago and was a student officer based on the Tameside District. He enjoyed serving his local community and formed close relationships with many of his colleagues, who have described him as an outstanding individual and role model.
Outside of work, Shazad enjoyed hiking and trekking, and was heavily involved in outreach work with youths in the local community, which focused on enabling youngsters to experience outdoor activities in the countryside.
He comes from a close family and his wife is currently pregnant with their fourth child.
Paying tribute to him, his family said:
