A BRAVE police officer today told of the moment he fearlessly pulled a man from a burning building.

Pc Tim Walker leapt into action after flames ripped through a block of flats in Jasmine Close, Trimley St Martin on Thursday.

Without any thought for his own well-being, Mr Walker climbed a ladder into a smoke-logged flat before rousing a sleeping resident and leading him to safety.

But today, the 40-year-old played down his heroics insisting: “I saw something that needed to be done and I did it.”

Mr Walker's heroics follow the brave actions of a man who alerted residents to the fire before helping a 20-year-old woman who had leapt from a window to safety.
