The Independent on Sunday has published a list list of the 50 Britons who it thinks did most to lift the mood of the nation in difficult times. Amongst the list (which includes pop stars, politicians and authors) – is Robert Bailey from Lincolnshire who was hailed a hero after saving his class of 42 from the Japanese tsunami in March.
With only 8 minutes until the giant wave hit, Bailey led his class to safety as the coastal town of Ofunato was swept away around them. While other expats came home after the disaster, Bailey stayed behind to help find survivors.
The full list is on the Independent on Sunday's website.
The Daily Mail also featured Robert back in March this year, just after the earthquake and tsunami.
