Near the Isle Of Wight

An Isle of Wight woman was recovering at home today after collapsing when she received a postcard.

Mrs Dorothy Doily, 57, of Little Atherfield, was rushed to hospital yesterday following the morning delivery by her postman.

"I always like to be at the door when the postman - Dave - arrives. But yesterday I opened the door and he was already there.

"He said 'Morning Mrs Doily' and handed me my post. When I looked at what I had I must have blacked out, but I now know that I had a postcard from my niece!

"Well, I knew that people sent postcards from here to friends when they're on holiday - well it's such a beautiful island - but I never dreamed other places would have them too! Well, our Tracy's been spending the summer in France, wherever that is, so she sent me one from there.

"I just came over all unnecessary, I can tell you. It's a good job Dave was there to call the ambulance."
