Calls For British Cave Divers To Be KNIGHTED

There are calls for seven British cave divers to be knighted after they helped to save a trapped group of Thai schoolchildren. 

Rick Stanton and John Volanthen were the first divers to reach the group nine days after they went missing in the underground network in northern Thailand.

The pair were joined by one of the world's leading cave divers Jason Mallinson plus four others who had flown to the region to assist at the request of Thai authorities.   

After gruelling efforts, the last of the Wild Boars football team were brought to safety yesterday and taken to hospital.
