The Isle of Man's longest serving traffic policeman is retiring today (Friday).
PC Duncan Livingstone has been in the force for more than 30 years.
The 49-year-old is currently responsible for police driver training.
Beth Espey reports (text, below, from attached audio file):
In his 18 years with the Roads Policing Unit, PC Livingstone has had wide experience of all traffic matters, including numerous TTs and riding police motorcycle escorts for visiting dignitaries, including members of the Royal family.
He has also played a crucial role in investigating serious and fatal accidents.
Deputy Chief Constable Gary Roberts says Duncan Livingstone is a fiercely dedicated, quietly efficient and thoroughly professional individual who will be sorely missed by the roads policing team.
He says Duncan has been committed to improving the safety of the Island's roads.
PC Livingstone has spent the last two weeks delivering driving courses to new constables.
After a holiday to celebrate his retiremment, Duncan plans to extend his own private driving school.
