A mum reportedly died of a broken heart this week after losing her son and granddad just days apart. Ashley Tomlin, 32, suffered a ruptured heart artery – as her son Jak had done – and could not be saved by paramedics.

It is now being investigated whether they had a hereditary condition. Ms Tomlin’s dad Keith, 59, – who lost his own father, James Tomlin, just a day before Jak’s death – says his daughter ‘died of a broken heart’. Jak passed away on November 6, just hours after complaining of chest pains.
