The St James' Park Hero

Newcastle United fan Dr Tom Prichard helped saved the life of a fellow supporter this weekend, and being thanked by the crowd was one of the best moments of his life.

"It all happened so quickly," Dr Tom told BBC Breakfast.

"I was sat in the Gallowgate End and I could see that there was something going on. Fans were calling over stewards and first-aiders and there was a lady doing CPR on someone. 

"As an A&E doctor I went to offer a hand to see how I could help."

"It wasn't just me. I had another doctor friend helping me out. St John's were brilliant, the Newcastle club doctor was there helping, so it really wasn't just me."

"But what I will say is when I was walking back to my seat and 10,000 fans were chanting 'hero' at me, that was one of the best moments of my life."
