A binman from Middlesborough has received an award from the Royal Humane Society after he saved the life of a toddler. Mr Thompson, who had recently completed a two day first aid course with Middlesborough Council, confessed that he would not have known what to do if he had not been on the course. Mt Thompson is now urging others to learn first aid. Read more about this story here.
