A man collapsed at Sandringham yesterday, while the Queen and other members of the Royal Family were attending church.

Emergency crews were called to the estate at around 11.50am on Sunday after a man, believed to be in his 60s, was taken ill close to the St Mary Magdalene Church, where the regular weekly service was taking place.
