Published 08/01/2010

The family of a 103-year-old woman have paid tribute to their local council for coming to her rescue through heavy snow.

Florence Jenkins, known as Millie, had to be evacuated from her home, near Pontypool, South Wales, when it lost all electricity.

Staff at Torfaen County Council came to the rescue with the offer of a bed at a local care home.

The council's forestry supervisor, Phil Grimes (47) managed to get to Millie’s home through ice and snow in his 4x4 and brought her to safety.
