She said: ”Our police officers, firefighters and other emergency workers go above and beyond every single day – running towards danger to protect us all.
"They are our frontline heroes who put their lives on the line every single day to keep us safe, and yet some despicable individuals still think it's acceptable to attack, cough or spit at these courageous public servants."
