A Hatfield police officer who helped save a drowning woman has been presented with an award by the Royal Humane Society.

Police Constable Lee Morris, who helped perform CPR after a colleague had dragged a woman from the River Lea near Hertford, was one of several officers to receive awards at a ceremony at police headquarters in Welwyn Garden City this month.

Welwyn Hatfield officers to receive long service and good conduct awards included Detective Sergeant Derek Gray, Detective Constable Eleanor Hancock-Denniss, and Detective Sergeant Mike Cannon.

Awards were also made to staff member Chris Pratt, based at headquarters, and Special Constable Anthony Tyler, who is based in Hatfield.

Chief Constable Charlie Hall said: “It is important that we properly recognise the commitment and achievements of our staff.”
