A Yellow Buses driver, Sue Levell, has been thanked by a passenger after she saved his life when he suffered a mini-stroke.
Sue, who applied ‘text book first aid’ to the passenger, was awarded with a bouquet of flowers by Colin Perry, the 66-year-old stroke sufferer.

“She kept me calm while acting as the link with the ambulance service. I can’t thank Sue enough. She’s a heroine in my eyes,” said Mr Perry.

“Sue was just brilliant. What she did was text book first aid in keeping the patient calm and comfortable until expert help arrived,” said Bournemouth-based Colin.
