James Ward, 18, from Morton, has won the Grand Prior Award at the Gainsborough St John Ambulance Division’s annual ceremony. The Grand Prior Award is the highest award that a Cadet can gain - and James has been involved since he was 10-years-old.

To gain his top prize, James had to complete 24 subjects - from first aid to outdoor pursuits.

James said: “I am extremely proud to achieved this.”

“St John’s Ambulance has been in my family for generations, so this means the world. I would like to thank my family and friends for their support.”
