After circling the area, the air ambulance eventually landed in Vauxhall park Woodley.

It has been revealed that the medical personnel had attended at a house next to the park.

A statement from the South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) said: “The Thames Valley Air Ambulance was one of a number of resources we sent to a serious medical emergency in a patient’s home nearby."
