Man dies at Diss leisure centre

A man has died after suffering a heart attack in a leisure centre.

Neil Forder, whose age is unkown, was in the sauna at Diss Swim and Leisure Centre at 9.30pm on Thursday. He was given first aid by staff but died at the scene.

A South Norfolk Council spokesman, which owns the centre, said: 'Staff involved were thanked by the ambulance crew who said it was some of the best layman's heart massage they'd seen.'

He offered his condolences to Mr Forder's family.
