Brave officers rescue a woman from a reservoir

Two brave Warwickshire police officers have been dubbed ‘a credit to the force’ after leaping into a reservoir to rescue a distressed woman.

Just before 3am on Saturday 24 June, police were called to Shustoke Reservoir following concerns for the safety of a woman located in the water.

PC Murray Young and Special Constable Michael Bliss from Bedworth police station arrived at the scene and after removing their uniform, plunged into dark water to help the 39-year-old woman, who was clearly struggling.

Using safety equipment they brought her back to the bank, fortunately uninjured, and she was detained under the Mental Health Act.

Chief Inspector Andrew Reynolds said: "The quick action and bravery of all the officers involved meant that the woman was rescued from the water and could receive medical attention. They are all a credit to the force."
