A DALGETY BAY police officer who works in Edinburgh Sheriff Court had her crowning glory shaved off last week.

Brave PC Kathryn Murray was sentenced to a bald head this winter after deciding to lose her locks to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The 52-year-old, who battled the killer disease five years ago and endured 14 months of chemotherapy, said she wanted to "give something back" and has already gathered £1,700.

Kathryn said: "I was unfortunate to find a lump and, having a mammogram which showed a further lump and shadowing on my lymph nodes, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2014.

"This resulted in a mastectomy and lymph node removal. My chemotherapy treatment lasted 14 months during which I lost all my hair.

"It's now been five years since my diagnosis and I feel I want to give something back to Macmillan Cancer Support as they helped me through my treatment."

Watched by around 50 cheering fellow officers and court staff, Kathyrn was shaved completely bald by colleague PC Ewan McCombie in one of the court rooms in the capital.

She said: "Going bald again will be a challenging time for me as it will bring back a lot of difficult memories but I am overwhelmed at people's support and I'm very proud to have raised so much for such a worthy charity."
