(UK EXPRESS) — Foreign Office minister Tobias Ellwood was praised by Prime Minister Theresa May after rushing to the policeman’s aid within seconds of him being stabbed by terrorist Khalid Masood.
There have been calls to award him a medal or even a knighthood for his efforts, which left him covered in blood as he massaged the dying man’s heart.
Yet he played down his role, saying he was “overwhelmed” by messages of support he had received and adding that he would be writing to the PC’s family.
Mr Ellwood said he didn’t want to talk in detail about the attack, explaining: “The story is not about me. He was the hero, not me. I don’t deserve the praise because I couldn’t save him.”
