Members of UK Armed Forces picked up a number of awards again this year at the Daily Mirror's annual Pride of Britain Awards.

The UK Joint Medical Group Afghanistan was recognised for its work in the field hospital at Camp Bastion.

Sergeant Noel Connolly from the Royal Marines also received a Special Recognition Award for his bravery last year in thwarting an attempted suicide attack.

Major Phil Packer of the Royal Military Police received the Fundraiser of the Year Award for his efforts in support of Help for Heroes.

And Petty Officer Martin Langlands received the Outstanding Bravery Award for his actions in an off-duty capacity which saw him rescue a family involved in a traffic accident.

Congratulations to all award winners!
