    Train driver David Graham

    The train driver who collapsed with a heart attack at the controls of his trans-Pennine express has been reunited with the passengers who saved his life.


    David Graham, 50, was driving between Scarborough and Liverpool when he suffered chest pains on a stretch of track in North Yorkshire.


    An appeal for anyone with medical training was met by a group of nurses returning from a seaside hen party.


    BBC programme Helicopter Heroes filmed David being airlifted from the train by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Service.
