Farewell to much-loved para­medic

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

AN “EX­CEP­TIONAL” para­medic who helped save lives across Peter­bor­ough for nearly 2 years was given a guard of hon­our at his fu­neral yes­ter­day.

Hun­dreds of col­leagues, friends and fam­ily flanked the cof­fin and then packed into Peter­bor­ough Cre­ma­to­rium to say good­bye to ded­i­cated Brian Older (6 ), who died af­ter a brave 10-month fight against can­cer.

Mr Older, of Mil­ton Road, Flet­ton, served with the East of Eng­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice us­ing his med­i­cal skills at road crashes and other emer­gen­cies to treat ca­su­al­ties.

He leaves be­hind wife Mag­gie (62), two daugh­ters, Amanda and Cather­ine, step­son Glen Baker and eight grand­chil­dren.
