A man collapsed in Sandringham today as he waited to see the Queen and the Royal family leave a church service.

The Royals received a warm welcome at St Mary Magdalene church, where large crowds gathered to see them arrive for an Epiphany service.

But in a dramatic turn one well-wisher was taken ill and collapsed, with a policeman rushing to help.

It is not clear what caused the collapse but paramedics were called and he was covered with a blanket while lying on the ground before being led away.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge accompanied the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh to the service.
