The chief constable of Cumbria Police has welcomed the posthumous award of a bravery medal to PC Bill Barker who died in the floods of 2009.
The 44-year-old lost his life when Workington's Northside Bridge collapsed.
He'd been directing traffic away from the bridge.
Chief Constable Stuart Hyde says the award does not just mark the bravery of PC Barker but also that of his widow and family.
