Bravery awards for cops who ran into burning pub.

Byline: TOM DAVIDSON Daily Post Reporter

HERO police officers who risked their lives to run into a burning pub to see if anyone was trapped have been nominated for a bravery award.

Sergeant Iwan Owen (now retired) and Constable Elwyn Williams ran into the Three Crowns pub in Bangor on March 30, 2014, after being some of the first officers on the scene.

They will be recognised at the 21st Police Bravery Awards on July 14.

The awards honour and recognise police officers who performed outstanding acts of bravery while on or off duty.

On the day of the fire more than two years ago, the pair could see smoke coming out of the top floor of the three-storey pub and a group of about 40 peoople gathered outside.

They both feared that more people could be trapped inside the building.
