QUICK-thinking Biggleswade St John Ambulance member Andrew Boness went into action when he came across a road accident. And now he has been nominated for a Vodafone Life Savers Award.

The 29-year-old was returning home when he spotted a car which had been hit by a lorry trailer.

A child on the back seat seemed uninjured but the mother driving was trapped by the dashboard which had been crushed down onto her legs.
