An 82-year-old woman who died at a branch of Santander bank in Mare Street, Hackney, on Monday morning has been named.
It is understood Phyllis Manning, who received an MBE for services to scouting in 1998, suffered a cardiac arrest while at the branch.
London Ambulance Services attended the incident but sadly Ms Manning died at the bank. A spokesman said: “We sent a single responder in a car, a motorcycle paramedic and two ambulance crews to the scene. The first member of staff arrived within six minutes of the 999 calls. We treated a woman who had suffered a cardiac arrest. Sadly, she died at the scene.”
A post-mortem at Poplar Coroner’s Court, Poplar High Street ruled that Ms Manning, who suffered from ischaemic heart disease had died of natural causes.
A Santander spokesman said: “We are offering our branch staff support and our thoughts and condolences are with the customer’s family.”
