Just one of our Heroes

Darren Crowe, from St Abbs, saved the life of a man who had slipped and fallen into the sea at the foot of the cliffs of St Abb’s Head.

When the St Abbs Lifeboat reached the spot, Darren swam into the cave where the man was clinging to a rock in the rising tide, and took him safely back to the lifeboat.

His bravery was recognised in 2011 with a St Andrews Bronze Award.
