Two police officers who saved a woman from falling onto the A47 will appear as special guests at today's Norwich City match.
PC Joseph Jermy and PC Jon Downs saw the distressed woman standing on the wrong side of the barrier on the A47 bridge at Dereham last May.
PC Jermy joined the woman, who had started to fit, on the narrow ledge, and - leaning over her - held onto the fence so she could not fall forward while they waited for the fire service to arrive.
The two will be KarePlus Community Heroes when Nottingham Forest visit Carrow Road later today and will bring out the match ball.
PC Jermy has been a police officer for four years, having followed in his father's footsteps, and PC Downs has been serving Norfolk as an officer for 16 years.
Fire service watch manager Duncan Barrow also climbed onto the ledge to rescue the woman from the 20-foot fall.
