Off-duty police officer David Marr threw himself at a thug clutching a petrol can who was threatening to burn down a restaurant – then joked that he wouldn’t let it ruin his lunch.

The sergeant, 42, who has been compared to Bruce Willis’s character in Die Hard, was eating with his wife Jenny, 43, when he tackled the would-be arsonist who had terrorised dozens of diners.

The Police Scotland officer, who is to receive a bravery award this week, then calmly went back to his table to finish his meal.
