We told how McCallum, of Ayr, heard his trapped neighbour’s screams as the inferno tore through her home.

He caught her boyfriend Alistair Innes, 22, as he leapt to safety from the first floor – then tried in vain to smash down the front door to get to Natalie.

At the time, he said: “As I ran to the house, the living room window exploded. A boy was hanging out the top window so I yelled at him to jump.

“I caught him as he came down and then I tried to break down the door. But the heat was too much. I could hear the poor girl screaming. I tried everything.”
