Artwork removed at the Forum in Norwich after woman collapsed

A piece of artwork was removed from a city centre exhibition after a woman collapsed.

The life-sized wax work of a man in a wheelchair performing surgery on his hand had been at the Forum for the last 10 days.

One woman had an 'adverse' reaction to it this morning (Monday) and fainted. She was treated by paramedics and the artwork was taken away.

Jayne Evans, from the Forum Trust, said: 'The wax work has cause some attention and drawn people in but no one's complained about it. We are sorry that for one member of public it has triggered a reaction.'

It was not clear why the woman had collapsed near the art installation.

Forum bosses have yet to decide whether to re-install the piece of art.
