FORMER model Penny Lancaster, who is a special constable with London Police and took part in the Light The Lakes fundraising event in aid of the Care Of Police Survivors, has reached the final 10 selection stage in the Amplifon Awards for Brave Britons 2021 Celebrity Hero category.
Penny, 50, of Harlow, who is married to Sir Rod Stewart, patrols the streets of London fighting crime, had to pass exams before receiving her warrant card and badge last year.
