Port of Tilbury’s PC Adam Webb receives Royal Humane Society Award

Police Constable Adam Webb, from the Port of Tilbury Police, has this month received the Royal Humane Society’s Resuscitation Award for the heroic assistance he provided, while he was off duty, at a serious road traffic collision in Essex in November.

On 25th November 2022, while he was off duty, PC Webb came across a very serious road traffic collision on the A13 in Basildon and he stopped to assist. He discovered that a 55 year old women was in cardiac arrest and he quickly rendered immediate CPR and restored the women to life. She was later taken to hospital and is making a steady recovery from the injuries she sustained in the collision.

PC Webb was nominated for the prestigious award by the Port of Tilbury’s Chief of Police Matt Bass who commented: “The heroic actions of PC Adam Webb at the scene of the serious collision demonstrates the very best of UK Policing, when others may have understandably panicked, or stood back hoping someone else may come forward to assist, Adam stepped up, trusting in his training and experience to save the woman’s life. He should be immensely proud of his actions as I am, and the rest of the force and Port of Tilbury are.”

Commenting on his award, PC Adam Webb said: “While I am honoured to have been presented with this award, I am extremely thankful that by using all my years of police training and experience, I was able to save someone’s life.”
