Wesley Roberts from Anderton, is celebrating after being crowned Home Emergency Engineer of the Year, the AA’s top accolade for its gas engineers at the AA Employee Awards earlier this month.

In his new role, Wesley 28 will spend the next 12 months as the ‘public face’ of AA Home Membership, representing one of the largest providers of home emergency and boiler cover in the UK.

The judging process began in February with regional heats and the award recognises not only Wesley’s technical skills but his approach to looking after AA Home Members whose heating systems have failed.

Wesley has been with the AA for three years. Before that he worked for another boiler repair company.
