A TERRIFIED Chorley nurse collapsed to the floor gasping for breath after allegedly being ‘strangled’ by a patient using a mobile phone charger.

Grandmother Doreen Hornsey said she is scared to return to work at Wrightington Hospital after the frightening ordeal which left her shaken and with lacerations to her neck, cuts, bruises and a black eye.

The 61-year-old has dedicated more than 40 years of her life to the profession and said she has never experienced anything as terrifying in her life.
