Thank you so much for the lovely article on the recent canal rescue near the Moorings pub in Sowerby Bridge.
I am the wife of the man called John. who rescued Whinifred from the canal. It was a very scary day but all turned out well in the end, thank God. I was the one who called the emergency services while John went into the water to help the lady. John’s full name is John Deakin from Queensbury.he is a very reluctant hero and just says anyone would have done the same thing. I don’t agree because there is no way I would have been able to jump in.
