Manchester's hero medics to be hailed

By Sally Wardle

The Duke of Cambridge and Ed Sheeran will honour medics who battled to save lives after the Manchester Arena bombing at the Mirror's Pride Of Britain Awards.

Prince William and the singer-songwriter will present an award for the paramedics, nurses and surgeons who treated 220 people, including many young victims, following the explosion at an Ariana Grande concert on May 22.

Firefighters who repeatedly braved the inferno at Grenfell Tower to rescue those trapped and members of the community who pulled together in the relief effort will also be recognised during the star-studded ceremony in London tonight.

The awards, in partnership with TSB, follow a year in which the UK's emergency services were tested to the limit by a string of terror attacks in Manchester and London.

The Pride Of Britain Awards will be broadcast tomorrow, 8pm, on ITV
