Four officers from the West Mercia Police Force who rescued two people from a burning car have been recognised at last night's Police Bravery Awards.
"The sheer persistence of these officers in such deadly conditions is testimony to their professionalism and dedication to duty. Without their intervention, more lives would undoubtedly have been lost. They all put the safety of others before that of their own. Their actions were truly astounding."
