A man collapsed from a suspected heart attack in the street and was kept alive by two Good Samaritans before an air ambulance arrived.

Members of the public reportedly performed CPR at the scene outside a charity shop in Freeman Street, Grimsby, shortly before midday.

Paramedics have praised the people who came forward to give the man life-saving first aid and said without them it could have been "a different outcome", reports Grimsby Live.

Police cordoned off junctions as the man was given further treatment after an air ambulance landed at the scene.

Someone who witnessed the person on the floor being helped said: "The staff from Iceland and members of the public rushed to his aid.
