A Welwyn Garden City-based police officer has been shortlisted in the UK diversity awards.

Rob Gurney has been shortlisted for the Positive Role Model Award for Disability at this year’s National Diversity Awards (NDAs).

A total of 24,584 people were nominated for NDAs this year and 124 nominees from across the country are being recognised for their achievements.

Among those being honoured are freedom fighters, domestic violence campaigners and trans-rights activists, all of whom work to combat injustice and discrimination in very different ways.

Rob said: “I had no idea that I had been nominated for this award and it is a great honour, not only for myself but for the police service and Hertfordshire Constabulary in particular.

“It demonstrates wonderful recognition of the unseen work of voluntary disability networks providing peer support across the UK.”
