Kate Garraway gets Derek’s meds back

“It’s been returned!” Kate said.

“Thanks to all who reached out – the message got to driver lovely Robert who has returned it – phew and thanks to all.”

Kate‘s husband Derek is battling the after-effects of Covid-19 and receives round-the-clock care.

The incident happened on Friday (July 1), and Kate desperately tweeted Black Cabs Lost Property – a feed to help people who have left things in the back of taxis.

In her message, Kate said: “@BC_Lostproperty help!! Have just brought Derek home in a mobility black cab from hospital for a weekend visit – and have left a case with all his meds and kit in the front!

“The driver recognised me but may not know it’s there – please look and get in touch – need urgently!!”

Last month, Kate told her fans that Derek had been in and out of hospital.

She said on Instagram: “So Derek has been in and out of hospital a lot recently.

“Hopefully the wonderful health teams will help him improve but I woke up early feeling exhausted and very fretful.”
