An ex-firefighter who shot to fame in the wake of the 7/7 bombings has been selected to fight the Cannock Chase seat for Labour at the general election.

Paul Dadge, 40, shared the news on his Twitter account on Tuesday evening.

He was branded a hero after a powerful photo emerged of him helping “the woman in the mask” after the tube bombings.

Mr Dadge will take on Tory Amanda Milling, who had a majority of nearly 5,000 at the last election.
