Bravery award for 'sticky ending' robbery worker Euan Brown

An Orkney shop worker who fought off a would-be thief with a sticky tape dispenser has received a bravery award.

Euan Brown hit Christopher Baird with the dispenser as he attempted to steal money at knifepoint from Baikie's Stores in February.

Baird was later jailed for three years at Kirkwall Sheriff Court after admitting assault and attempted robbery.

Mr Brown received the Scottish government's Brave@Heart award.
