A Fowlmere nurse who ran onto London Bridge to help terror attack victims last year has been honoured with a medal for her bravery.
Elizabeth Bryan – known as Lizzie – was at a hen party in the capital when terrorists struck on June 3, 2017, and she ran onto the bridge alongside her soldier brother-in-law Peter and friend, fellow nurse Nicola Purchase. All three were given Royal Humane Society bronze medals at a ceremony in London on Tuesday.
Lizzie told the Crow: “It was a very special occasion, and very humbling. It was a really touching day.
“I had my parents with me and my best friend Faye, as my husband is deployed in Kosovo at the moment.
“It was a really nice event, and powerful listening to the other citiations. It was quite phenomenal really.
