Big thanks to one of our refuse crews who came to the rescue of a young girl in distress while out on their rounds earlier this week.

Michael Theedom, Gareth Evans and Gavin Riley were waiting in their vehicle at the Warren roundabout near Durrington Cemetery when a pedestrian collapsed while crossing the road.

The crew got out immediately and gave assistance to the young girl, comforting her and alerting a police officer in a nearby car to come and help.

An ambulance was called and the individual was taken to hospital.

Tony Patching, the Councils' Waste and Cleansing Operations Manager, said: "I want to say a big well done to our crew for acting so quickly, especially considering how busy that road is."
