TWO Exmouth men involved with the South Western Ambulance Trust were awarded for their excellence and dedication at an awards ceremony.

Technician Roger Beacon, of Gibson Close, and paramedic Dave Jackson were awarded the Queen's Medal for Long Service and Good Conduct.

Mr Beacon has worked for the service for 22 years and Mr Jackson was awarded for his service of 25 years.

To qualify for this prestigious accolade, employees must have completed 20 years of service.

Mr Beacon said what he liked most about working for the ambulance service is that each day is different.

The Trust's Chief Executive Ken Wenman said: "There are so many crews who work above and beyond the call of duty in our ongoing quest to save lives.

"I am proud to work with such a group of dedicated and committed people, who often face difficult, challenging and harrowing situations whilst caring for patients.
