When Horsforth man Mike Hodgson died of a sudden cardiac arrest while out cycling with his wife Sara, she pledged to do something to stop the tragedy happening to other families.

Mike, 57, and Sara were out cycling in the Lake District in August 2015 when the dad-of-three collapsed.

Since then, Sara has been fundraising with help from yoghurt brand The Collective to install lifesaving defibrillators in disused telephone boxes. The first has been installed on High Street in Settle.
