SMall to­Ken for Sav­ing a life

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Commended For Quick-thinking -

Chief Con­sta­ble Alan Pugh­s­ley, who pre­sented the awards to the three men on Tues­day, said it was a hum­bling evening.

He added: “This is just a small to­ken from us for heroic, brave and fan­tas­tic work by mem­bers of the public.

“They sim­ply have saved some­one’s life.

“The lady is here be­cause of them.

“This is the high­est award I can give, and they de­serve it. The car was on fire, and they were able to in­no­va­tively get wa­ter and force their way into the ve­hi­cle.

“They didn’t think about their own safety. It is un­be­liev­ably brave.”
