On Tuesday, July 19, officers from Derbyshire Police’s Shirebrook safer neighbourhood team undertook a search for an elderly woman who had become unwell in Market Place.
After scouring the area, the lady was found in the care of some teens – who ensured she got home.
In a Facebook post, a team spokesman said: “We’d like to thank the teens involved, you should all be very proud.
“These sorts of incidents show what the Shirebrook community is really all about. This is what we like to see.”
