A taxi driver was among the first on the scene, saying: "I'm a private hire driver and I was collecting customers. I jumped out and started phoning the fire brigade.

"I went in and she was opening her car door. So I was starting to help her get out. Someone was saying to make sure the engine was turned off which she had.

"I just helped her get out of the building. There was some nurses waiting outside of the doors so I just passed her over.

"I got in my car and took my customers home."
