David Berrecloth returned to Bakewell swimming pool to thank those who had saved his life when he collapsed there last year.

A Bakewell man brought back from the dead by staff at the town’s swimming pool has thanked the people who saved his life.

David Berrecloth was visiting the pool last year with his wife Ellen, daughter and granddaughter when he collapsed in the main reception area. Pool duty manager Lee Rathbone and colleague Dave Pryor responded immediately, using a defibrillator and the kiss of life to revive Mr Berrecloth, who returned to express his thanks last week.
