Bravery award for chip shop worker

A shop worker from Shoeburyness in Essex who got stabbed in the head as he wrestled an armed robber to the ground has been given a bravery award from Essex police. David Leeks, 23, confronted the robber, who had a chisel, when he took cash from the counter at the family-run West Road Fish Bar.

David and his sister Charlotte managed to pin him down until officers arrived.
