A man was taken to hospital after a medical emergency in Stapleford. Fire crews and the ambulance service were called to a home on Pasture Road, near its junction with Hickings Lane, at around 10.08am on Wednesday, June 26.

The road was closed for around 90 minutes as, according to a witness, two fire engines and a platform attended. Traffic was heavy in the area, between Hickings Lane and Crawford Lane.

A post from Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service on X said: "We are currently dealing with an incident on Pasture Road, Stapleford. The road is closed in both directions at the Hickings Lane End - we expect the closure to last around an hour. Please plan your journey accordingly!"

A video showed an aerial appliance ascending into the air at around 12.15pm. A spokesperson for East Midlands Ambulance Service said: “We received a call at 10.08am on 26 June to a private address in Stapleford. The caller reported a medical emergency.

"We sent a paramedic in a solo response car and a crewed ambulance. The fire service was also in attendance. One patient was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre via crewed ambulance.”

An incident occurred in a similar area in 2023, when police, fire and ambulance services were called to an address in the town after a man suffered a "spinal injury".
