Thanks to you – our readers – Laura was able to contact two of the soldiers to thank them personally for what they did last Sunday.The family had been on holidays here and were travelling home having spent the night in the popular The Gap Lodge B&B in Barnesmore.Said Laura: “The men who came to help us rescued my world, because my children are my world.“They are real heroes as far as we are concerned. We were in a ditch, our car was upside down and the doors were locked. I want to thank them again from the bottom of my heart.”  FOUND THEM!
