Two lifeboat men from Porthcawl will pick up their gallantry medals in London today.

Chris Missen and Paul Eastment were part of a three-man team which came to the rescue of Val Glover, 46, in Umberleigh, Devon in December.

This will be the first time an inland flood rescue has been recognised at the RNLI's national award ceremony.
