Steve Brind, 46, and his son Alex, 20, of Summer Dale, had just got back home from rescuing his wife who was stuck in the snow when the pair noticed some blue lights outside their home.

Steve said: “My wife works in a care home so she went into work but got stuck on a hill but when we got back home we noticed the ambulance was in need.”

The pair and their neighbours David Kiernan, 29, Martin Colyer, 42, Alan Brooks, 42, amd Peter Colyer, 22, put salt on the road and cleared the paths so the ambulance could get out.

Steve added: “The ambulance was on the way to one of our elderly neighbours who had fallen and had a possible fracture.
