Retired policeman Percy Mann (102) got a surprise when police officers turned up at his care home in Thornliebank on Thursday evening.

Earlier this week, the Extra reported how Percy was putting smiles on the faces of the staff at Renaissance Care’s Whitecraigs Care Home by showing them how TikTok videos are done during his daily exercise routine.

Word of Percy’s exploits soon reached the local constabularly, so on Thursday evening, during the weekly clap for carers and key workers, officers arrived at the care home to applaud him for his efforts in lifting everyone’s spirits during lockdown.
