Two men who saved a council worker from a burning lorry have won an award for their bravery.

Adam Lessiter, 32, of Aveland Way, Baston, and Carl Creasey, 33, from Boston, won the adult public hero category of the annual Spirit of Fire Awards, held by The Fire Fighters Charity, on Friday.

The pair had stopped at the scene of an accident near Waterside Garden Centre in Baston on June 1 and had pulled a council worker from Ryhall from the wreckage of a burning lorry.

Just minutes later the lorry exploded.

The council worker was treated for serious injuries after the crash, but thankfully is on the road to recovery.

Sadly the driver of the car which had collided with the lorry, Alexander Glenn of Churchview, Northborough, died in the crash.
