A police officer from Dyfed-Powys has won an award after saving a young boy from the River Wye.
PC Marc Woods was on patrol on July, 26 last year when a member of the public reported hearing screams for help.
He found a 10 year old boy clinging to a rock in the middle, his father was spotted further down. They had been washed away in the river close to the Sweet Lamb Rally Complex in Llanidloes, just off the A44.
PC Woods swam out to the boy with a rescue line before taking him to the far bank before Fire and Rescue officers arrived to save his father. The pair were crossing the river to go camping, the boy fell in followed by the Dad who was trying to rescue him, they were swept away by the current.
The officer was rewarded for his bravery by the President of the Police Superintendents Association of England and Wales.
The Chair of the Dyfed-Powys Police Federation praised PC Woods' courage.
