The family of a 70-year-old Asfordby woman, who died in hospital on Friday, have thanked the staff at Melton’s Caffe Nero, members of the public and the emergency services who came to her aid.

Paramedics and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance were called to Caffe Nero in Market Place after East Midlands Ambulance Service received a call just after 1pm about a patient having severe breathing difficulties.

The woman, who hasn’t been named at the request of the family, was taken to Nottingham’s Queen Medical Centre by land ambulance where she later died.

The woman’s daughter-in-law told the Melton Times: “As a family we just wanted to thank the two Caffe Nero staff, three members of the public and the emergency services who attended to her.

“They were absolutely outstanding and we can’t thank them enough for supporting her throughout the whole time and for how professional and courteous they were.”
