Police and paramedics are dealing with a 'medical incident' outside the old library in Weston-super-Mare this afternoon (Thursday).

A police car and van, and ambulances, were outside the building, in the Boulevard, at around 1pm.

An Avon and Somerset Constabulary spokesman said they were dealing with a ‘medical incident’.

A spokesman for South Western Ambulance Service said paramedics were called to treat one patient, and attended with one ambulance and three rapid response vehicles.

There are no further details about the incident.

The historic library, designed by Hans Price, has been closed since 2011.

Land and Buildings Limited (LBL) paid £250,000 for the Boulevard site at an auction in November 2014, and has planning permission to turn it into 22 apartments.
