'I was made redundant in my hospital bed'
Nigel Winkley, 40, was recovering in his hospital bed following surgery to clear his arteries after a heart attack - when his bosses from British Gas turned up.
He thought they had come to wish him well - but instead they gave him a three hour power point presentation and served him with a redundancy notice.
Mr Winkley told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire: "The nurses said if she'd known who it was she'd have thrown them off the ward.... they could have caused me to have another heart attack."
A British Gas spokesman said: "We met with Mr and Mrs Winkley recently to address their concerns and have apologised that the news of the site closure was communicated to them in a public place. We are reviewing this case to make sure lessons are learnt for the future."
