THREE life-savers were hailed as heroes this week.
A doctor, a policeman and a good neighbour all sprang into action in a series of Easter dramas.
In DRAMA NUMBER ONE Accrington Stanley club doctor Joyce Watson helped save the life of a man who had been knocked unconscious outside the social club after last Saturday's game.
She used her expertise to stem the flow of blood and keep him breathing until an ambulance arrived.
In DRAMA NUMBER TWO PC Dave Williams went to the aid of a suicidal man who was perched on the ledge of Accrington's Arndale Centre multi-storey car park threatening to jump.
He tried to talk him out of it but when that failed he grabbed the man just as he was lurching forward and, with the help of a colleague, pinned him down and subdued him.
In DRAMA NUMBER THREE brave Dean Lynch went into a blazing house in York Street, Church, through thick black smoke to rescue a dazed woman who had wandered back inside after a chip pan fire.
His neighbour Martin Noke had earlier snatched a baby from her arms.
A police source said: "These are three cases of real heroism. In each instance someone could well have died without their intervention."
