NEWS: Hughes to be released from hospital

Great news from the Freeman Hospital today was that George Hughes is to be released tomorrow and allowed to travel back to his North West base.

George, as many of you will know, suffered a heart attack while racing for Astley on Sunday against the Vikings and was taken to Wansbeck hospital before being transfered to the Freeman yesterday.

Further tests were carried and it looks like George has been lucky and not suffered any permanent damage.

George has passed on his thanks to the Northumbria Vikings members, who took time to contact him and visit.

Get well soon George, from all at 33/18 News.
