A grandfather died in his home after waiting 40 hours for an ambulance despite his GP telling 999 workers his life was at risk.

Gerard Brown, 65, fell at his home in Glasgow on September 6, but paramedics did not reach him until two days later, on Wednesday, September 8, by which point he had passed away.

The dad-of-three weighed only six stone and had survived cancer and suffered from a number of health issues.

He died at his home and his family say his body was still warm when paramedics got there shortly after 3am.
