A petition is being handed into Downing Street, calling for a bravery medal for the Helston woman dubbed one of the "Angels of Woolwich."

It is after Ingrid Loyau-Kennett confronted one of the alleged killers of Drummer Lee Rigby.

85,000 people have signed it. The campaign was organised by Woolwich rector Reverend van der Valk.

He said: "I think that is an amazing example of the best in human nature. I know that Ingrid is a girl guide leader, and I think one of the mottos of the girl guides is 'be prepared'. I'm sure that everything in her background prepared her to step forward and help in that situation.

"It was really so soon after the event, only hours or a day or two after the event. I think you need a little bit of time to think about what's happened, and so as I've reflected on what they did, I think the importance and bravery of what they did has really become more apparent."
