She said: "All these questions running round in my head led me to have a panic attack on a train.

"I controlled it until I got off. As I walked down the platform I walked quickly.

"Put my sunglasses on and fought back the tears. I got to my car and got in and locked the door and I gave myself a talking to, slowed my breathing down and drove home."
