Said the following about Richard Pickett:

“Rick attended a concern for welfare call on the morning of the 30th of December at Friargate Level crossing in Grimsby. Upon arrival Rick engaged with the man and prevented the man from jumping from the bridge several times. Chief Inspector Graham Bridges emailed the following "We want to send some recognition in respect of Rick Picket’s actions at Boulevard avenue this morning. By all accounts he has grabbed hold of the male who was intent on jumping and without the intention it is likely he would have actually jumped"

It is clear that Rick went above and beyond for this person and saved the man’s life.“
