A fire crew gave emergency aid to a man who was taken ill at Epworth Show on Monday.

The elderly man approached members of the fire service on the showground site, as he was finding it difficult to breathe.

The crew gave him oxygen therapy, after which members of the St John’s Ambulance Brigade offered the patient medical advice.

The incident took place just before 3.30pm. The man finally recovered and was joined by his family.
