Hotel boss saves George Best brother's life
George Best’s younger brother has paid tribute to a hotel manager who saved his life.

While having a drink at the bar Mr Best began to feel sick, his |vision blurred and he lost consciousness.
Fortunately hotel events manager Mark Brockbank was on hand. He grabbed a defibrillator and sprang into action, keeping the supermarket manager alive until an ambulance arrived.
Ian, who lives in Torquay, said: “There will never be the words to express my thanks.
“If it wasn’t for Mark and the fact the hotel had a defibrillator, I could have been going back down the motorway in a coffin.”
