The twelve police officers who took down a man wielding a machete on Shardeloes Road, last year, without prejudice but with the aid of a wheelie bin, have been honoured for their bravery. The News Shopper reports:

They were amongst 58 officers, special constables, staff and volunteers honoured at Lewisham police's commendation ceremony this week. PCs Hasan Berkul, Hayley Barton, Tim Chik, Dan Dewdney, Shaun Elliot, Nick Gerry, Kelly Gladdis, David Hughes, Jennifer Lane, Alex Melnkov, Tracy Todd and Tim Ward were all honoured for their Brockley bravery.

Take yourself back to the hot summer of 2011 to remind yourself that it was a genuinely scary moment, as the guy hiding by the window in this commentary attests.

Fair play to them. That guy looked like he was going mental on PCP. Am quite frankly surprised he wasn't shot after that performance. Good honest cops deserve that award.

I admire the police for their bravery in these situations. When they use firearms, there is often the risk of some terrible mistake. They certainly deserve an award.

I wonder what the story was with this guy, he looked quite deranged and very dangerous.
