Suffolk Constabulary

A Suffolk police officer has been nominated for a national bravery award.

Pc Stephen Vaughan is among nominees from each force across England and Wales for the Police Federation Bravery Awards.

Pc Vaughan received a Royal Humane Society award in March for rescuing a vulnerable woman from the sea off Lowestoft on New Year’s Eve.

He was called when a woman left hospital against medical advice and drove to the seafront, where it was feared she might harm herself.

Pc Vaughan found the woman floating in the water, dragged her from the freezing sea and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Finding a pulse, he put her in the recovery position until paramedics arrived.
