A lollipop lady who stepped in front of an out-of-control car to protect schoolchildren has received an award for her bravery.

Karin Williams from Rhoose, Vale of Glamorgan, was injured along with five children and three adults outside Rhws Primary School in July 2013.

On Wednesday, she was presented with a Royal Humane Society bronze medal for her actions.

The driver of the car was found guilty of careless driving in May 2014.
