Bakewell Swimming Pool staff have been praised after saving a man’s life.

When 81–year–old David Berrecloth, of Rowland, near Bakewell, collapsed in the main reception, Pool duty manager Lee Rathbone and colleague Dave Pryor responded immediately, using a defibrillator and the kiss of life to revive him.

The family send a card to the staff, thanking them for their efforts.
