A toddler's life was saved when an ambulance controller gave her father emergency lessons over the telephone in how to give the kiss of life.

Arshad Mahmood from Crumpsall, Greater Manchester, called the emergency service when his one-year-old daughter Anisha stopped breathing.

During the six-minute emergency call Anisha stopped breathing three times, but each time the contoller, Scott Lacey, instructed her father in how to breath air back into her lungs.

Mr Mahmood, 40, and his wife Tahira, 32, said: "We can't thank everyone enough. We really thought we'd lost her."
