Birmingham’s helicopter heroes have been honoured for saving the life of a heavily-pregnant stabbing victim and her unborn baby.

 

Last September PC Paul Canvin was on annual leave when an armed gang burst in and attempted to rob the newsagents that he was shopping in.

Northumbria officers Sgt Elliott Richardson and PCs Sarah Currie and Michael Otterson were on duty in Gateshead when they received a call about a man who had made threats of violence. After searching for him, they spotted him entering a pub, wearing body armour and carrying a rucksack. When PCs Currie and Otterson opened the door to the pub, they were confronted by the man holding a handgun.

Firefighters and a specialist rescue team carried out a nerve-racking operation against the clock to save a driver impaled on a metal railing
