Calls For Helston Mum To Get George Medal
10:30am 10th June 2013
There are calls for the Helston mum first on the scene of the Woolwich murder to get a bravery award.
Ingrid Loyau Kennett was filmed speaking to a suspect moments after Drummer Lee Rigby was hacked to death.
The cub scout leader says she acted on instinct.
But now a vicar in the London district wants her and two other women to be awarded the George Medal. Reverend Jesse Van Der Valk said: "I think it's so often the case in our society that people witness an incident taking place and they feel that perhaps they should intervene in what's happening, but due to the fear of the consequences of what's happening they don't intervene or they walk away.
"These three women, instead of walking away, stepped forward without any regard for their safety and I think they showed great compassion and great bravery and quite possible prevented further bloodshed."
