Bruno suffers heart attack

Ex-Radio 1 DJ Bruno Brookes is recovering in hospital today after suffering a heart attack. The 47-year-old was treated at St Thomas? Hospital in central London where he appeared on a television documentary yesterday.

Brookes was taken to hospital earlier this week after suffering chest pains. Doctors took pictures and, after seeing that the right side of his heart was blocked, used a ?stent? to open up the artery. He appeared yesterday on City Hospital, the BBC?s fly-on-the-wall documentary about St Thomas?.

He said the attack was a ?wake up call?. He told presenter Nadia Sawalha: ?I suppose I knew it was a question of time before something like this happened.? He added he would now try hard to quit smoking as this was the main reason for his scare.

Brookes presented Radio 1?s main top 40 chart show for several years in the 1980s and 1990s, as well as other programmes, until he was axed after a cull of older DJs. He later set up a successful internet radio station and also established a company that manages presenters and trains broadcasters.
