St John Ambulance is searching for inspiring stories of first aid heroism, as the deadline to enter the charity's Everyday Heroes awards has been extended.

The awards nominations have been extended until Sunday, April 23 for this star-studded annual event, supported by Laerdal, which celebrates the nation's life savers.

Finalists will be invited to the awards ceremony at London's Hilton Bankside Hotel on September 28.

Last year saw a record number of nominations and, with nominations now open a fortnight longer due to popular demand, the charity hopes that this year will yield even more incredible stories.

St John Ambulance is the nation's leading first aid charity.
