Bravery Award

Winner: Andrew Hunt

Cornwall is no stranger to wild weather but what happens when the storms strike and there’s barely anyone around to help?

We’d all like to think we’d step up to the plate – just like Andrew Hunt who watched a man and dog swept into Mullion harbour.

He managed to throw a line into the huge waves and pull not just the casualty to safety, but his pet as well. It took several attempts but Andrew didn’t give up.

Marine company Classic Seagulls say he acted without any thought for his own safety.
