A woman in her 40s was taken to hospital after suffering breathing difficulties during a medical emergency in Lowestoft.

The East of England Ambulance Service were alerted on Sunday afternoon (March 5) following reports that a woman was unconscious at a property on Tedder Road.

An ambulance service spokesman said: 'We dispatched two rapid response vehicles, the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA), two ambulance crews, and a co-response unit from Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service. The woman, believed to be in her 40s, was treated for breathing difficulties before being taken to James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston via land ambulance for further care.'

A spokesman for the EAAA said the crew of Anglia One attended to aid a woman in her 40s suffering with a medical emergency. They completed an assessment and administered medication to the patient at the scene, working alongside the EEAST paramedic team.
