TWO policemen went to the aid of a woman who suffered a suspected heart attack in Helston this morning.

The woman was taken ill in Coinagehall Street but fortunately the officers, who were in an unmarked car, were close at hand to help.

A defibrillator stationed next to the monument was used and two ambulances, an air ambulance and a co-responder all attended the scene around 11am.

After administering treatment, the woman was taken to hospital.
