“Tonight we took a call from a man who had taken an overdose. He was lying in a street in Plymouth, dying, We managed to keep him online, get a description of what he looked like and was wearing, work out where he was and send an ambulance and police to him.”
“And Thanks to you [Iain] for the part you played. We all have a role to play in supporting those that are struggling. Well, I’ll never forget tonight’s show. Off home to kiss my sleeping kids. Be kind to yourself x,” she wrote.
