Paramedic Dominic Stark, who attended the scene, said: “I was told the Prime Minister and Boris Johnson had pulled over when they noticed a woman collapsed on the street.

"When I arrived a few minutes later, I found the PM holding the woman’s hand. I took over caring for the patient and they left a few minutes later.”
