A teenage army medic has become the first woman to be awarded the Military Cross, one of the highest honours for gallantry in combat. Private Michelle Norris, 19, braved a hail of sniper and machine-gun fire from 200 insurgents during a pitched battle in southern Iraq in order to give lifesaving treatment to a wounded comrade.
