A range of people were recognised for their bravery at the Bexley borough commander's ceremony last Friday (July 12).
The awards were collected at the civic offices in Bexleyheath and they included a member of the public who showed courage and bravery to preserve the life of a distressed man.
Borough commander Supt Peter Ayling said: “It’s an honour and privilege to present you with these awards. It fills me with a sense of pride to be able to lead the safest borough in London, something which has been achieved through the hard work of those sitting here today.
“Today is about celebrating success, achievement and outstanding bravery. Ours is a really noble cause and you should be proud every day in the part that you play. These commendations are a small way for me to recognise and thank you for your exceptional actions”.
