Report: RNLI volunteers proud to receive medals

Two lifeboat men from Porthcawl are the first to be awarded a gallantry medal for a flood rescue.

Chris Missen and Paul Eastment are part of the Flood RescueTeam for the RNLI and were called in to perform a daring mission when floodwaters hit Devon before Christmas.

They told our Correspondent Joanna Simpson they are surprised and proud to receive the honour.
