Aberystwyth rifleman honoured at Pride of Britain

Rifleman Matthew Wilson, from Aberystwyth, received the Military Special Recognition award at last night's ceremony.

The 21 year old was on duty in Afghanistan in 2011 when a Taliban sniper shot him in the head.

His helmet saved his life and when he regained consciousness he picked himself up and carried on fighting. After one soldier suffered a critical injury, Rifleman Wilson, pushed forward to help his fellow soldier, running across open ground with no cover.

He was awarded the Military Cross for his bravery that day and last night received his Pride of Britain Award from Katherine Jenkins.

Wales' Local Hero: Awards were 'inspirational'

Wales's Local Hero - as featured on ITV News - attended the Pride of Britain Awards last night.

Phil Jones, from Wrexham, was nominated after helping raise more than £5.5m for charity, while working at Airbus.

He was chosen from among four Welsh finalists to go forward as our representative.

The award went to Anne Scarfe from Plymouth, but Phil says the ceremony was "inspirational" and that he will "carry on doing good things" for others.
