John Evans, Tyler Evans and Jordan Keegan were praised by Hartlepool Neighbourhood Police Team for their quick actions in helping locate the male at Hartlepool Marina.

John, Tyler and Jordan acted quickly while on their bikes and guided local police units to the male’s whereabouts.

This allowed an exact location for a police drone to be deployed and the vulnerable male was located safely close to the water’s edge.
