It’s no longer a surprise to hear of a bingo game carrying on when someone falls ill during a game and most recently Gala Bingo did just that.

A female player became ill, the nature of her illness was undisclosed, at a Derby Gala Bingo and emergency services were called. The games continued while she was being treated and as she was taken away to the hospital where she ended up passing away.

A spokeswoman for Gala Bingo said, "Our thoughts are with the family at this time.

"Our initial approach in such instances is to create as calm an environment as possible - to reduce the stress for the customer in question, their friends and family and our qualified first-aider, until the emergency services arrive.

"In this case it was felt that the best way of dealing with this particular incident was to continue with the table-top bingo. However, we delayed the main-stage bingo until the customer had been taken to hospital.

"Our staff are trained to deal with situations like this and carried out all the correct procedures until the paramedics arrived."
