Hose a hero, Mick?

Street sweeper Mick Dewhurst used the hose from his road cleaning machine after he saw flames and smoke spewing from the bonnet of a Land Rover parked near houses in Fulwood Road.

Mick, of Birley Carr, said: “There was nobody else nearby so I thought it was best to step in.” His employer Amey has put him forward for an award.
