Policeman's award nomination
A BRAVE Bristol police officer has been nominated for a National Police Bravery Award.
On a freezing night in December 2010, PC Grant Goulden dived into Bristol docks to save the life of a drunk man who had jumped into the freezing water and was struggling to stay afloat.
With the help of a life ring, PC Goulden pulled the man to dry land. The water was so cold, PC Goulden and the man suffered hypothermia.
He has already won an Act of Bravery Award from Avon and Somerset Police Authority and a Royal Humane Society bravery award.

PC Goulden said: "You could say I was a bit of an idiot to jump in. It's very hard to explain what it was like without being there. There was a large group of people getting increasingly agitated and I was thinking if this person does die, we could have a riot on our hands."
Avon and Somerset Police Federation spokesman Kevin Phillips said: "PC Goulden's actions were a typical example of the bravery shown by police officers on a daily basis throughout the force, the region and the country. Without his quick-thinking, reactions and bravery on that winter's evening we would have been looking at another death statistic."
The Police Bravery Awards take place tonight at the Plaisterers Hall in London.
