Quick-thinking sisters Becky and Beth Dews have been hailed heroes after pulling their mum back from the brink of a potentially-fatal diabetic coma.

Claire Dews, 38, suffered a hypoglycemic attack when her blood sugar levels dropped while she was asleep at home in Alwoodley, Leeds. Her daughters, aged 11 and nine, heard Claire crying at about 4am – but when they went to investigate, were unable to wake her up properly.

They dialled 999 and an ambulance operator told them to do everything they could to stop her losing full consciousness while an ambulance was sent to the scene.
