Paddy Kinsey was a young boy whose house on Thornton Street was gutted in a fire in June 2013. Paul Kershaw was on the call and saved his life. The next day Weatherfield Gazette journalist Will Reade called round at 11 Coronation Street with Paddy and his mother Megan to reunite them with Paul for the paper.
The story came out in front of shocked Eileen Grimshaw of how the downstairs was in flames and Paddy was trapped upstairs. Paul, seeing a child’s bike out the back, thought there might be someone inside. He went in there and pulled Paddy out as his mother screamed in hysterics at the front. Just seconds after Paul emerged, the floor collapsed and the six houses in the row were gutted in the inferno. Megan told Paul that the loss of her house was nothing compared to the possibility of losing Paddy and, tearfully, she told Eileen that she had a very special man in her life. Paddy had drawn a picture of Paul and gave it to him as a thank you.
