Wiltshire teenage footballer returns after cardiac arrest

A teenage footballer from Wiltshire who went into cardiac arrest during a match has returned to training for the first time since the incident.

Quinton Barham, 14, was playing for his local team in February when he came off the pitch feeling dizzy, and collapsed.

Paramedics spent 90 minutes getting his heart going again before he was taken to the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

Doctors found his pulmonary artery was in the wrong position and he needed heart bypass surgery.
