Bravery: Lee Wharton

Lee Wharton

Lee was visiting a friend when he noticed lots of black smoke coming from a nearby flat. Upon investigating, he realised the flat was on fire.

Lee called 999 first and then also discovered that there was an elderly woman inside. Whilst waiting for the fire service to arrive he spoke to the lady to ensure that she was okay. She was vulnerable and very reluctant to leave her flat and Lee managed to reassure the lady, encouraging her to leave the flat. 

Lee has been nominated for his selfless bravery; the lady was extremely anxious about leaving and Lee’s support enabled her to do so and be led to safety until the fire brigade arrived.
