An off-duty police officer has been praised for his quick thinking actions when he rescued a woman found semi-conscious in the snow in Bude.
PC Jack Rickard was walking to the police station on Friday night as Storm Emma was continuing to make for treacherous conditions.
After hearing some faint cries, he found the woman on Bude golf course. She had become disorientated whilst trying to get home.
As she slipped in and out of consciousness, PC Rickard carried her to an ambulance station.
A member of the public also stepped in to help warm her up before they could reach paramedics.
After receiving treatment, she was sent home safe and well.
Despite receiving high praise for his actions, PC Rickard played down his heroics.
