AHOGHILL born London Ambulance paramedic, Gary Moody, is to receive a special recognition award for his bravery in dealing with casualties after killer driver, Khalid Masood, caused carnage in the recent Westminster terror attack.
Gary, along with his motorcycle response unit colleague Richard Webb-Stevens, are among a group of 10 specially selected Ambulance Service staff invited to the Good Morning Britain Health Star awards to be thanked for their response to the attack.
The award is testament to Gary's courage and heroism on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 22, when the unthinkable happened in the heart of London.
Up until Masood began his rampage of terror, it had been an ordinary working day for him.
The past pupil of Longstone Primary and Cullybackey High School, has been living and working in London for 11 years and joined the London ambulance service after graduating from Greenwich University.
