Father’s praise for help

A SCARBOROUGH father has thanked Good Samaritans in the town who helped his son when he suffered an epileptic fit.

Christopher Hannam, 21, of Gildercliffe, suffered the fit in Prospect Mount Road on Friday.

However, his father Paul said a number of passers-by stopped and gave Christopher help and provided him with blankets before emergency services arrived.

Mr Hannam said Christopher was now feeling much better and had returned to work at McCain.
