The reason why emergency services rushed to a multi-storey car park in Swindon town centre has been revealed.

Two police cars, an ambulance and a paramedic car were witnessed stationed opposite the Whalebridge multi-storey car park on Monday, February 19 at around 12.30pm, with blue lights flashing.

The car park is located along Islington Street behind Swindon Magistrates Court.

An Adver reporter who was at the scene witnessed police cars leave the scene as ambulances remained to deal with the incident.


A member of the ambulance team told our reporter: "Yes we were called out to an incident here after a person had a fall, but it isn't a big event for the public to be worried about."

A spokesperson for the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust said: "We were called at 10:50hrs on Monday 19 February to an incident in Swindon and we sent a double-crewed land ambulance and a rapid response vehicle."

A spokesperson for Wiltshire Police said: "This is a medical incident being dealt with by ambulance now."
