A lollipop lady who risked her own life to save children when a car overturned outside their primary school in the Vale of Glamorgan will receive a Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Award tonight.

Karin Williams, 50, was seriously injured after stepping into the path of the car outside Rhoose Primary School in June, pushing pupils to safety.

She endured eight hours of surgery after being left with two broken kneecaps, a broken elbow, a broken shoulder and a badly swollen face.

She will be honoured for her bravery.

The awards recognise Britain's unsung heroes, and are being presented tonight at a ceremony in London.

The Pride of Britain Awards will be screened on ITV at 8pm on Tuesday


Pride of Britain Local Hero finalist: Phil Jones

Phil Jones from Wrexham has helped raise more than £5.5 million for charity.

Whilst working at Airbus he led their charity campaign making millions. He's been a committed volunteer for more than 25 years - helping promote local football, raising money for the local hospice and always prepared to offer a helping hand to anyone who needs it.

Megan Boot has the story.

Bonnie Tyler makes her local hero nomination

ITV is once again joining forces with the Daily Mirror to find the individual you think deserves to be crowned our local hero 2013.

We are looking for people who go the extra mile to be a real force for good in their neighbourhood - they could be volunteers, or professionals who go way above and beyond the call of duty - people we should be celebrating.

Swansea's own Bonnie Tyler joined the campaign today by saying who she would want to nominate.

The Daily Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards will be screened later this year on ITV.

If you know someone who deserves recognition, you can nominate them by going to:

You can also pick up a nomination form at Lidl stores
