Salute to a hero.

Whilst suffering a "once in a thousand years" flood, the town of my birth lost a hero.

Whilst directing drivers away from a bridge threatened by rising waters, the bridge collapsed under the feet of PC Bill Barker.  His body was found later, several miles down the coast.

PC Barker leaves a wife and four children.
