    A British army medic who put herself in "mortal danger" to treat a wounded Afghan soldier under heavy Taliban fire has been awarded the Military Cross.

    L/Cpl Kylie Watson, from Ballymena, Co Antrim, gave medical care in exposed open ground for 20 minutes.

    Her citation spoke of her "immense courage" and described her as an "inspiration" to her platoon.

    L/Cpl Watson is believed to be only the fourth woman to receive the MC, the third highest award for gallantry.
    Kudos to this brave Ballymena lass.
