A quick-thinking little boy who dialled 999 after his mum collapsed at home has been visited by the police officers who responded to his call.

Noah Gofur, seven, played inside a police car as officers thanked him for his heroic efforts.

The boy phoned the police on January 25 when his mum was unable to move from the floor of their Petts Wood home.

He told the dispatcher: "Hello, my mum can’t move. She’s lying on the floor and I don’t know what is happening."

Noah then gave the police his address in Beaumont Road.

Matt Lockie, an impressed PC who took part in the special visit on February 2, said: "Noah did a great job in making sure his mum got the care she needed, and his fast thinking and bravery meant she is now recovering well.

"We were delighted to be able to pop round to say well done and we know he has been recognised at school as well which is great.

"Hopefully his actions mean that if any other children are in the same situation, they will know what to do."

His proud mum, Marjana, was found semi-conscious and Noah was praised for keeping his 15-month-old sister entertained while he waited for the emergency services.

Marjana was treated by paramedics and was taken to hospital after suffering complications from an ear infection.

She described being "so proud" of her son and said his response was "amazing".

"We’ve always taught him to know our address in case he ever got lost or something happened, but we could have never imagined him being so brave."

She added: "I’m so grateful for everything the police have done for us, not only on the night but coming to see Noah and letting him play in the police cars too.

"We really feel like this has been a huge boost to his confidence."

The mum has since returned home with Noah and his sister.
