Cilla the secret life-saver

The late Cilla Black was always known for her personal generosity, but it's not quite so well known that she did life-saving charity work with the Buckinghamshire-based Scannappeal, which provides medical equipment.

We talk to breast cancer survivor Tina Reid to find out more about how the equipment Cilla helped to fund and also hear from her former chauffeur Adam Harding-Jones, who says Cilla became like a mother figure to him.

Boy dies from meningitis after 999 call mix-up

A five-year-old boy has died from meningitis after a mix-up between the 999 ambulance operator and the NHS 111 non-emergency service.

Yusuf Abdismad's mother called 999 for an ambulance only to be told to hang up and dial 111. By the time an ambulance finally arrived, Yusuf was in cardiac arrest. During the call to 111, Sofia Mohammed said her son was not breathing but the call-handler continued to ask questions rather than dispatching a paramedic immediately.

St Pancras coroner Mary Hassell was so alarmed that she issued Prevention of Future Death orders to the London Ambulance Service and the NHS 111 provider, London Central and West Unscheduled Care Collaborative.

Sue said: "She played a big part of our lives from the start. She was very encouraging and supportive and often asked how things were going. She was thrilled when we announced our engagement. It was great that she was at the wedding."

– Bernie Gibson from Compass Fostering

Police reinforcements managed to block another surge of migrants from entering the Channel tunnel overnight but most are still determined to get to Britain.

However it's emerged social services and fostering agencies in Kent are struggling to cope as hundreds of migrant children are being left at the sides of roads near Dover bewildered and unable to speak English.

The abandoned youngsters - some as young as 12 - are often traumatised after their long journeys across Europe and need to be found a safe place to stay.
