THREE Stourbridge scouts have been branded "amazing" by TV adventurer Bear Grylls.

George Cole, Stewart Watson and Jack Welling recently achieved the Queen's Scout Award for completing a range of challenges including service to their community, undertaking a five-day residential project in an unfamiliar environment and learning a new skill.

The 18-year-olds were honoured by Grylls, who was made chief scout in 2009, at a ceremony at Windsor Castle on Sunday (April 27).

He said: "All these young people have lived the adventure of a lifetime to achieve their Queen’s Scout Awards, and I admire that spirit so much. "They are huge inspirations to the other 550,000 scouts in the UK and I am so pleased that scouting has honoured them today.

"They are amazing.”
