Bravery award for Hatfield police officers after fire rescue
FOUR police officers who saved a young mother and baby from a smoke-filled flat are to be honoured for their bravery.
Hatfield Pcs Jay Thomas, Ellie Reeve, Mark Cooke and Scott Pearse are to be honoured by the Royal Humane Society for saving the lives of 19-year-old Jodie Eyre and her three month-old-daughter Daniele from a flat fire in Hatfield earlier this year.
The officers’ heroics, during the early hours of Thursday, July 16, made the front page of the Welwyn Hatfield Times, after Jodie thanked the Pcs for saving her and her baby.
Now the Royal Humane Society, a national charity that rewards acts of bravery in the saving of human life, will present the four Pcs with the Testimonial on Parchment – an historical award recognising those who put themselves in danger to save another.
Welwyn Hatfield chief inspector Dave Newsome said the four officers were “a great credit to Hertfordshire Constabulary”.
