Wigan Heros
The house on Leaway Higher Ince where a an 82 years-old man was rescued from a fire by neighbours Karl Heaver and Robert Barker..

Moments after he was dragged to safety, there was a blast which would, said firefighters, undoubtedly have killed him. Leslie Cunliffe was today said to be critically-ill in hospital.

Wigan Borough Fire Commander Steve Sheridan, who was at the scene of the blaze throughout Friday morning, said: “Without their quick-thinking instinctive actions we would definitely be looking at a fatality.
“Both these men put their lives on the line to rescue their neighbour and I will definitely be putting them forward for a bravery commendation.”


Its good to know that there are people out there that will risk there lives & not rob you.
Karl & Robert both derserve medels.

I have since heard that Mr Cunliffe has past away. Our thoughts are with his family
