Man gives hospital £3,000 for saving family

A man has handed over a £3,000 cheque to an Oxford hospital to thank staff for saving the lives of his girlfriend and their newborn daughter.

Kevin Smees' partner Nicola Lansdown collapsed at home with a brain tumour while heavily pregnant in May.

Doctors at the John Radcliffe Hospital performed an emergency Caesarean, and Ms Lansdown was put in an induced coma.

Afterwards Mr Smees, 38, from Aylesbury, began fundraising. "I can't thank them enough," he said.
