A Norfolk man's life was saved by a passer-by after he collapsed on his driveway. 

John Boniface fell unconscious outside his home in Tivetshall St Mary last Thursday morning, suffering injuries to his head.

David Ready, on his way to work, spotted Mr Boniface and delivered CPR after being unable to find a pulse. 

He called 999 and when paramedics attended the scene they told him he had saved Mr Boniface's life. 

Mr Boniface was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital for further care.

He said: "I’ve been told by two doctors that if David wasn’t there I might not be here now."

Mr Ready, who lives in Wymondham, was trained in delivering CPR through his work with UK Power Networks.

The 63-year-old had used his training several years earlier after his dad collapsed, but was unable to save him. 

He said: "I feel quite proud of myself for what I did for John, but what happened before with my dad came back to me."
