A Southwark-based survivor of the 1987 King’s Cross fire received an award at the annual Excellence in Total Policing Award last week.
Special Inspector Daemonn Brody received the Special Constable of the Year award at a ceremony in central London on Feb 10.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “Leading by example, he has averaged 1,200 hours a year over the last five years.
“His tireless work and unwavering enthusiasm has helped to improve already high levels of performance at Southwark.”
Within five days of arriving in London from Scotland in 1987, Special Inspector Brody was badly injured in the disaster that killed 31 people.
