A Bromley paramedic was thanked by Paralympians at a special event last week marking the contribution by ambulance staff at the London Games.
Claire Carey was presented with a certificate as she met with BMX finalist Liam Phillips and sitting volleyball star Martine Wright.
She said: “The event was a great success as was the Games which I am pleased to have been a part of.
“The Games were outstanding and meeting Martine and Liam was an honour and an excellent way to remember the events of the summer.”
Honouring the paramedics took on a special significance for athlete Martine, who was treated by staff from the service after she suffered injuries during the 2005 London bombings.
Speaking at the central London event, she said: “I just want to say a huge, huge thank you - I would not be here today if it weren’t for you.
“When I was walking around inf ront of those 80,000 people in the opening ceremony I was doing it for you as well.”
