BBC presenter taken to hospital late Friday night

BBC news host Reeta Chakrabarti thanked a stranger for their act of kindness after she attended A&E late on Friday night.

And after his kind gesture, the news anchor reached out to her good Samaritan online to thank him for his help in her hour of need.

She penned: “I was in A and E last night – it wasn’t serious thankfully but I was in pain – a lovely person in the waiting room saw I was suffering and went to buy me some cold drinks.

“Just like that, a complete stranger. Hope you are on Twitter, thank you.”

She added: “We spend a lot of time reporting bad news, so I wanted to share a simple act of human kindness – they do happen!”
