A team of British divers have been decorated for their role in rescuing a boys' football team from a Thai cave.

Richard Stanton and John Volanthen, who were the first divers to reach the children, have been awarded the George Medal, the second highest civilian gallantry award.

Three divers were made MBEs and two others receive the Queen's Gallantry Medal.
