Queen braves heavy rain to honour scouts

More than 600 youngsters were honoured by the Queen at Windsor Castle today, as she attended the annual scouting review.

The majority of the youngsters received their Queen's Scout Award - the highest a scout can achieve - while a small band of 50 youngsters received gallantry awards for demonstrating outstanding bravery in saving the lives of others.

Owen Griffiths, aged nine, from Northolt, west London, received the gallantry award for his swift response to his mother Lucinda having a stroke in their home.
