In a video posted by Bedfordshire Police Department on Twitter, nurses together with personnel from the county’s fire department stood in front of Mary’s workplace and held a minute silence for her followed by thunderous applause.

Mrs Mary Agyeiwaa Agyapong was a Labour and Delivery nurse and left behind a husband and her newborn baby girl.

Colleagues at Luton and Dunstable Hospital said Mary was “a fabulous nurse and a great example of what we stand for.”
