David Beckham joins Helston mother for Pride of Britain Awards

First published in News

A Helston mother was associating with the stars last night as she received a Pride of Britain Award.

Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, from Bulwark Road, was presented with a bravery award in recognition of her efforts in the aftermath of the killing of fusilier Lee Rigby in Woolwich back in May. She kept an armed man talking until police arrived.

Last night’s award ceremony honoured the country’s bravest and most deserving members of the public, with stars such as David Beckham turning out to present awards.

It is the latest plaudit for Ms Loyau-Kennett, who last month received a Special Certificate of Exceptional Endeavour at the Cornish Gorsedh in Penryn.

The mother of two, who is half French, has also been presented with a bravery medal by the French government and more than 85,000 people have signed a petition calling for the British government to do the same thing.

There were two others as well as her and they wouldn't let them be filmed after all, citing the court case as a reason!
