After two policemen in Buckinghamshire - entered a gas-filled house where a man was attacking his pregnant wife...

Sergeant Spencer Kervin and another officer who doesn't want the publicity, have been officially recognised for the bravery and professionalism by the Chief Constable.

In July 2010, Sergeant Spencer Kervin who serves Aylesbury town - and his colleague, were called to Aston Clinton to incident where the man was also threatening to ignite the gas inside the building.

A woman had returned home to find her husband with blood on his face and hands, and the house filled with gas.

The man had begun to attack his wife, who was six months pregnant, while she was talking to the police on the phone. She was trying to prevent him from igniting the gas.

Without fear for their own welfare, Sgt Kervin and his colleague entered the house and found the couple wrestling in the hallway. They managed to restrain the man and get the woman out of the house before opening all the windows to release the build up of fumes. The officers then provided first aid to both.

Presenting the award, Chief Constable Sara Thornton said:  

“Sgt Kervin and his colleague are commended for their bravery and composure during a dangerous incident. Their actions led to the safe evacuation of an extremely violent man and his wife, who was carrying their unborn child, from a gas-filled house. Their actions saved the lives of the individuals concerned and are a credit to Thames Valley Police and the police service.”
