Man who had heart attack while driving reunited with resilience firefighters that saved his life
A man from Helsby who had a heart attack whilst driving along a motorway has been reunited with the resilience firefighters who helped save his life.
Mark Ashton has no memory of the incident that occurred in Runcorn between junctions 11 and 12 of the M56 westbound shortly after 3pm on Wednesday 8 July.
After the 56-year-old had lost consciousness and collided with the central reservation, Neil Harrison and Ian Lloyd were on hand to give him life-saving CPR just three days after they had undergone resuscitation training as part of their temporary return to Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service to assist their former colleagues during the coronavirus pandemic.

Two house fires started by sun rays reflecting off mirrors
Firefighters are asking everyone to not put glass and reflective items on windowsills after sunlight reflecting off mirrors caused fires in two homes in six days.
The warning comes due to the sun being low in the sky at this time of year so it can catch people out.
