HOW proud The Sun was last night to honour the jaw-dropping heroism of paramedics Mick Hipgrave and Deena Evans.
Mick saved Deena’s life when both were slashed by a frenzied knife attacker during a callout.
They so richly deserve their “999 Hero” gong, their poignant tribute from Prince William and the standing ovation from the star-studded audience at our Who Cares Wins awards.
Theirs was just one of the amazing stories of courage and selflessness at our annual celebration of the best of the NHS, after another year blighted by Covid. Our grateful thanks to all those who made the glittering bash possible.
You can share in the experience when Channel 4 screen it on Sunday evening, sponsored by the National Lottery.
And we will publish all the winners and their fantastic stories in Monday’s paper.
