GENEROUS customers have set up a fundraising page after the much-loved owner of an Indian restaurant suffered a heart attack.

Hasnath Miah, who runs Indian Dream in Didcot, was rushed to hospital following the medical emergency.

Mr Miah has been giving away free meals to NHS staff, police and other key workers from the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

He also donated £500 to food banks in Didcot and Abingdon after the community reimbursed him for a phone that was stolen from the restaurant.

Customers are now giving back once more, with £125 raised on a gofundme page in just four hours.
