Man dies from suspected heart attack after car fire

A man has died from a suspected heart attack after discovering a neighbour's car alight in West Lothian.

As fire crews arrived, a 69-year-old man who lived next door in Woodmuir Drive, collapsed at the scene.

Firefighters and ambulance workers tried to revive him but he died before he could be taken to hospital.

Lothian and Borders Police said an investigation was under way into the cause of the fire.
