A busier than normal Sunday led to a 'bit of pressure' at the A&E department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn earlier today.
East Cambridgeshire police tweeted that at one point A&E was heavily congested with 16 ambulances queuing, and added 'avoid unnecessary attendance'.
However, Dominic Chessum, head of communications at the QEH, said that, at no point were there that number of vehicles queuing, and there were just two ambulances in the queue at about 3.45pm today.
He said: 'We did have a bit of pressure earlier as there were a few more people than usual attending A&E. But it was not significant.'
