Milkman hailed as hero

UK – A milkman was hailed a hero last week after saving the lives of eight people by putting out a raging fire with 320 pints of milk.

35-year-old Steve Leech was named Hero Milkman of the Millennium after dousing the blaze in a shop in Cornwall, saving the lives of people in flats above. Commenting on the incident he said: “I kicked the door in and started pouring milk everywhere.” Leech added: “It was hard work opening all those bottles as they have tamper-proof lids. It was even harder trying to explain to my boss where all the milk had gone.”
