A nursery nurse who was stabbed as she shielded children from a machete- wielding attacker will be honoured by her union this week.

Lisa Potts, 21, suffered deep wounds to her back, chest and hands when Horrett Campbell, a paranoid schizophrenic, launched the attack during a teddy bears' picnic at St Luke's school in Wolverhampton last year. Miss Potts will be presented with a certificate of merit for outstanding bravery during Unison's annual conference in Brighton this week.
