BBC 999 Awards
16 August 2012
BBC One launched the BBC 999 Awards to honour the heroes of Britain's Emergency Services and to recognise the tireless and heroic work they do on a daily basis. Since the 999 emergency number came into use 75 years ago, the Police, Fire and Rescue, Ambulance, Coastguard and Mountain Rescue services have saved millions of lives.
John was honoured to be asked to present an award at the event, which will be broadcast on BBC One on 16 August at 8.00pm.
