Heart attack

For some years Ian Fleming’s health had been declining and he had long suffered heart problems and difficulties with his kidneys and back.  On April 1961 whilst attending a Sunday Times meeting, he suffered a major heart attack.  On the surface he joked to friends, writing that, ‘years of under work and overindulgence’ had caught up with him, but behind the humour he realised life would never be the same again.
