PC Stephen Fletcher talks about the moment he and his fellow officer tried to aid a member of the public, who eventually managed to escape, after a petrol bomb was thrown at the driver's car and burst into flames. He says they did not think about the danger they were in at the time.
The pair were awarded with a Police Bravery Award by the Police Federation after a masked gang of around 40 people targeted their patrol car with petrol bombs and an axe during the riots in Coventry in 2011.
