Poignant memorial to mark 25 years since the death of PC Lewis Fulton

A memorial has been held to pay tribute to a brave Glasgow police officer who was killed in the line of duty 25 years ago.

Police constable Lewis Fulton was stabbed whilst responding to an emergency call in the Gorbals area on June 17, 1994.

The 28-year-old, of Kilmarnock, was  left seriously injured after tackling a man with a knife who had already attacked one of his colleagues.

He was rushed to Glasgow’s Royal Infirmary but passed away a short time later, leaving behind his wife Christine and then seven-month-old son Luke.

Chief Superintendent Brian McInulty was joined by Christine Fulton, Luke Fulton and Georgette Fulton.

Colleagues, friends and loved ones gathered at Glasgow City Centre Police Office on Monday morning to mark the anniversary.

A floral wreath was laid on behalf of all those employed by Police Scotland in the Greater Glasgow Division.

Widow Christine was joined by her son Luke and the late police officer’s mother Georgette to witness the event.

Chief Superintendent Brian McInulty, divisional commander for the division, said: “This morning Greater Glasgow Police paused to reflect and to remember PC Lewis Fulton who was killed whilst serving the people of Glasgow 25 years ago today.

The memorial was held on the steps of Glasgow City Centre Police Office.

“We were honoured to be joined by Lewis’s wife, mother and son.”
