A Banbury pensioner has been reunited with the 15-year-old boy who saved his life last week after he got into trouble breathing.

John Yates, 73, of Orchard Meadows, met up with Reza Irvani and the rest of his family on Tuesday, to thank him for rescuing him.

Mr Yates, who lives in a sheltered housing complex, suffers from emphysema and requires mobile oxygen supply each time he leaves home.
