Tribute unveiled for US Secret Service agent; TURNBERRY.
A memorial has been unveiled in tribute to a US Secret Service agent who died during Donald Trump's visit to Scotland last year.
Special agent Nole Remagen, 42, became unwell while guarding the US President at Turnberry last July.
The former US marine, who left behind a wife and two children, died in a Glasgow hospital after suffering a stroke.
A memorial plaque has now been unveiled at the Trump Turnberry Resort in Ayrshire on the first anniversary of his death.
A wreath was laid on behalf of the Remagen family, who are marking the anniversary in the US.
Assistant chief constable Bernard Higgins and Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf MSP also laid wreaths on behalf of Police Scotland and the Scottish Government respectively.
Assistant Chief Constable Higgins said: "It was a privilege to be able to pay tribute to special agent Nole Remagen a year on from his death, and entirely appropriate that his service has been recorded on the Police Roll of Honour in the UK.
"A number of our officers were involved in assisting special agent Remagen's relatives who travelled from America, as well as his Secret Service colleagues, and I know they were deeply saddened by his death.
"Our thoughts remain with special agent Remagen's family, friends and colleagues."
The event was organised by the Police Roll of Honour Trust and attended by a number of representatives from Police Scotland, the US Secret Service, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, the Scottish Police Federation, the Association of Scottish Police Superintendents, and other organisations.
Last year, trustees of the charity met UK-based colleagues of special agent Remagen in Edinburgh to present them with a commemorative scroll, one for his family and one for the US Secret Service.
