AN AWARD has been pre­sented to a brave school­girl who helped saved her mum’s life.

Chloe, the old­est of three chil­dren, ran to get help from neigh­bours who her­alded her a “hero­ine”.

She was pre­sented with the David Mar­riott award for youth en­deav­our at a Wye and Hinx­hill parish coun­cil meet­ing.
