John Crossen was visiting Scarborough with his wife on Wednesday, November 15, when he stumbled and fell on the footpath leading to the Harbour.

Mr Crossen said: “Immediately a number of people helped me, lifted me up, provided paper handkerchiefs to staunch the wound on my head and looked after me.

“One kind chap saw an ambulance and flagged it down.

"The ambulance crew came to assist me, patched me up and took me to Scarborough Hospital.

"The A and E staff were brilliant!

"I was treated most efficiently by the nurses and doctor and was patched up and released around noon.

"A credit to the NHS.

“I didn't have the opportunity to thank the people who helped me personally, so I wrote this article to express my gratitude to the kind people of Scarborough.”
