A grandfather has renewed his appeal to thank the good Samaritans who rushed to help his wife after she suffered a fatal heart attack in Bury St Edmunds.

Bill Bulstrode wanted to trace those who rushed to the aid of his wife Teresa when she collapsed on September 22 as they walked in Wilks Road from Nowton Park with their 15-month-old grandson.

Two women driving by the scene, next to the bus stop in Wilks Road, stopped to help, while a passing ambulance pulled up and took Teresa, 62, to West Suffolk Hospital where medics tried to save her but she was pronounced dead.

After an appeal through Suffolk News, Mr Bulstrode, 68, managed to speak to one of the women, who took him and his grandson to A&E.

He said: "It was lovely (to speak to her). She explained a lot more about what happened because it's all a bit of a blur."

Mr Bulstrode, of Occold near Eye, would still like to speak to the other woman who stopped to help his wife of 44 years.

He believes she may have been a nurse.

Mr Bulstrode would also like to make contact with the ambulance drivers to thank them.
