A 63-year-old was airlifted to hospital after he suffered a heart attack at a petrol station near the M1 in Northamptonshire.

The incident happened on Thursday last week and details have been released by Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

“The patient’s current condition is unknown,” he added.
