One of the first paramedics on scene of London Bridge terror attack awarded for his exceptional courage and bravery

Gary Edwards, one of the first paramedics on scene of the London Bridge terror attack in 2017, has been awarded a London Ambulance Service Chief Commendation award for his exceptional courage and bravery. On 3 June 2017, Gary responded to a 999 call to what was originally thought to be a road traffic collision on London Bridge. After arriving at the scene in six minutes, he quickly realised it was something far more sinister, a terror attack, which tragically claimed the lives of eight innocent people and injured many more. Gary, a Tactical Response Unit (TRU) paramedic who is specially trained to respond to terrorist incidents, worked on immediately treating the most seriously injured and evacuating many others to safety, away from the Bridge and from the danger.
