Bishop Philip Tartaglia, the Bishop of Paisley in whose diocese Glasgow Airport is situated, has issued a statement following yesterday's attack at the airport. Speaking from Lourdes in France where he is on a Diocesan pilgrimage he said; "I am deeply saddened at the news of the attack on Glasgow Airport. I commend the swift action of the police and security staff on the scene and welcome the fact that injury to passengers and airport employees was avoided." He added " My prayers are with all the staff as they return to work over the next few days and with the passengers who will use the terminal as the building reopens. The Diocese of Paisley will be glad to assist the airport operator in any way possible in the weeks and months ahead."
