National award for brave policewoman
12:31pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
AN off-duty policewoman who foiled an armed robber at a Scarborough supermarket will be presented with a national Police Bravery Award this month.
PC Sara Widdrington will meet Prime Minister David Cameron and Home Secretary Theresa May at 10 Downing Street on October 17, for her actions in apprehending the robber last year.
PC Widdrington was shopping with her son at Tesco in Westwood, Scarborough, last November, when she noticed a man, later identified as Robert Vogan, pointing a pistol at the cashier.
She tackled the man while a member of staff phoned the police, and another helped PC Widdrington take Vogan to the floor and restrain him until police arrived.
