Police officer wins bravery award after risking his life

A Dyfed-Powys police officer who risked his own life in an attempt to save a drowning boy from deadly quarry waters has won the Welsh Police Bravery Award.

PC Alun Morgan was recognised for his attempt to save the 14-year-old at Cilrychen Quarry in Llandybie, Carmarthenshire, in June last year.

The teenager sadly died later in hospital.

PC Morgan was presented with the award at a ceremony last night, which followed a reception at 10 Downing Street where he met the Prime Minister, David Cameron and Home Secretary, Theresa May.
